For now, the best protections against Glass malware is to use MyGlass and be extremely careful when downloading apps from a third-party site, Lady said.

"I encourage users to do their research and not just download the latest, greatest, coolest Glass app off of some third-party site," Lady said.
Lady and Paterson graduate this spring. Lady has a job waiting at cloud-based business software provider Workday, while Paterson is headed for Google.
