Google has removed nearly two dozen applications from the Android Market that Google says are malware masquerading as legitimate apps. The apps in question are pirated versions of popular free applications. Once downloaded and installed, they root the phone and then use an executable file to steal user data (including IMEI and IMSI) and download/install more malware. Users are recommended to check their devices to see if they've downloaded the apps in question.

The problem is...

This stupid Android phone will not let ME decide if I want an application to have access to various features. I have to let it have everything it wants, or not run it at all.
Damn phones letting you know what each app wants to do with your phone!

It should work like other phones and give apps full-permission without your knowledge.

Ya it would be nice to know, but if you have an andriod phone get lookout mobile. It scans every app you get for malware and spyware.
