Google Android is a dirty dog.

Would you pet a dirty dog?
Would you put you face to it?
Cuddle it?
Put it in you pocket? …

“We have already stated several times that the requirements for becoming an Android developer that can publish apps to the Android market are far too relaxed,”

Sophos blogger Vanja Svajcer wrote. “The cost of becoming a developer and being banned by Google is much lower than the money that can be earned by publishing malicious apps. The attacks on the Android Market will continue as long as the developer requirements stay too relaxed.”

In all fairness to Google, users who installed the counterfeit games saw permission screens that warned the apps were able to “edit SMS or MMS, read SMS or MMS, receive SMS” messages. The apps also came with terms of service that disclosed users would be subscribed to premium services that cost as much as €4.50.

And in all fairness to the dupesthat bough such a pile of crap, you can't blame them for expecting the provider to accept some sort of responsibility.

The problem is the bastards at Google are just too rich to sue.
