I am following up with this mail just to bring under your attention the
problem related to apk file scan as mentioned in previous mail.
I also have another query regarding creating a avbases (Clam AV signature)
which has only malware relevant to Android OS.
This is because full avsignature base is huge if we consider memory
limation of handheld os like Android.
Eagerly waiting for your valuable response.
