Google Deletes Fraudulent Android Apps [bbc.co.uk]
Google has removed 22 applications from its Android Market after they were discovered to contain fraudulent software.

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.

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



Looks like they get deleted after a security company reports them. Shouldn't it be Google maintaining the efficacy of their own resource?
