    Infected Google Play Store apps? Unbelievable, I mean, who'd have thunk? o_O

    Looks to be risky business with those for some time now but with megatons of pack-about phones with Goo Goo, and fast times connection, they can be infected in record time. It's the new fashion trend.

    Absolutely agree and it is after all so blatantly obvious and that doesn't even begin to touch on those long reported.

    I don't think it's a priority for Google.
