New Malware Turns Your Droid Into A Bot

Google removed around 24 applications from the Android Marketplace last week due to excessive Malware and virus problems. According to the North Carolina State University Blog, a new type of malware called DroidKungFu works like the previously removed DroidDream, although deadlier.
