Google Updates Android Market Security

by Keith Vance

After several malicious applications were published via Google's Android Market, Google has said they have plugged the security hole, pulled the apps from the market and devices, and they called the cops.

Hackers published malicious applications on the Android Market to steal data from Android smartphone users. On Sunday, Google said they plugged the security hole and yanked the applications from the Android Market.

Google remotely removed the malicious applications from affected Android devices, suspended the associated developer accounts and called the cops.

The vulnerabilities don't affect Android versions 2.2.2 or higher. You can learn more about the security flaw here.
