I am curious if it's possible for Malware to be transferred from an Android device to a Desktop Computer.
In my situation I had detected malware on my android device via Lookout, and promptly deleted the infected app; however I had already opened the app by the time of malware detection. There was no malware found on the device after deleting the app(according to Lookout), but I am skeptical that it's just "gone." There was no weird popups or sms spam or anything, so not sure if it's just a background malware, or if it really is gone.
I was looking at these questions.
which from the Iphone question it seems that people say you cannot transfer malware via an Iphone, but what about an Android device?
The first link says that known AV programs will detect malware from other devices, so I would assume if it was in my Android device, I would have detected it while connected to my Desktop computer(s)?
Essentially, I'm looking to make sure that if malware had infected my device, that I had not transferred it to one of my desktop computers, or that it didn't infect my SD drive, which could infect the desktop computer, or even another phone.
