Android Market now delivering malware, as well as updated Angry Birds?


The biggest news at Google’s Honeycomb event last week was not the Honeycomb UI, but rather the updated Android Market. The Market is now web-based, making it utterly convenient to install applications across all of your Android devices, either from a PC or from any of the devices. Sophos Security (and AppleInsider, with undisguised glee) says that, in fact, it’s a little too convenient.
The idea is that with iOS devices you either need to be accessing iTunes from your device or from the iTunes application linked to a particular device to install apps. With the new Android Market, though, all you need is a web browser and to be logged into your Google account.
