Google moves to delete 'RuFraud' Scam Android Apps

[ via BBC News Technology ] 14 Dec

Google has removed 22 applications from its Android Market after they were discovered to contain fraudulent software.

Google has said it swiftly removes apps that violate its security policies.

Apps posing as popular third-party software such as Angry Birds tricked users into sending premium text messages. Unlike some other app services, Android Market apps are not vetted prior to being added to the store.

It may be added that Google has come under fire in the past for not doing enough to remove substandard or dangerous apps posing as popular software.
