PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The Lookout Security Team has identified a new variant of DroidDream Light found in the Android Market, which Google already removed from the Android Market. Fortunately the malware was available in the Android Market for a short period of time so the number of downloads was limited to 1000 - 5000. This is the third iteration of malware likely created by the authors of DroidDream; the first was discovered in early March (the original DroidDream) and the second in early June (DroidDream Light)."

From Google: We're so sorry to 1000 to 5000 people who got this malware, we'll not do any better at keeping it out next time.

The joys of a reactive market place...
