Google Needs to Clean Up Its Android Market Malware Mess

Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols, ZDNet:

The only reason we have so much malware on Android is that Google doesn’t do basic security checking. I’m not asking for much Google. Just run the applications on some test devices, see what they do, see if they grab resources and information they shouldn’t be grabbing. This isn’t rocket science. This is basic quality-assurance.

Score one for “openness”.
