Even more Android security issues

Researcher Jon Oberheide explains on his blog how users can be tricked into installing apps on their Android phones — through an XSS vulnerability! This tops of the last weeks fuzz about Android security.

On Saturday, the Google mobile team blogged about how they would deal with the malware spread through their Android Market — the same day they confirmed that there were 58 different malicious apps that had been downloaded onto around 260,000 Android devices.

At the beginning of February I blogged about the dangers rising from the Android market's web driven installation routine. Oberheide now showed one scalable way to take advantage of the market store. Others remain.
