Holding the largest share of the market in mobile apps, Android Google Applications on the Android Market were the Trojan Horse in an app-attack last week.  The applications slipped past, well no one really, apps were freely uploaded by developers to the Android market, but that might be changing soon.  Virtually any app could make it to the market and with no quality assurance, the Android market was open to attack.  Security is now an issue for Android and while Google has a lot of experience in web security, that expertise just didn’t get around to the Android Market.

Private user data was compromised, but Google promises to repair any of the damage remotely.  The malicious apps have already been removed from the market and now Google will keep a closer eye on the content that comes through.  Other app markets were not targeted simply because they are much harder to infiltrate.
