The problem is that when updates come through the Play Store, Google can verify that the updates are not malicious.....if not, then they can't. For big companies like Facebook it isn't a problem, Facebook probably isn't going to send out a malicious update. But a smaller, independent app company just might. It would be the ultimate trojan, originally a harmless app, but then gradually send out updates which attack the phone. It isn't a far fetched notion at all I don't think.
