Yes, Google does need to do better here - but I can't lay the whole thing on their doorstep, that's for sure. It's always easier to wreck things than build things.
Last December I caught one of these payloads right on release day, apparently, and I know first hand that these criminals are devious. The little bugger not only disabled my installed A-V, it disable Task Manager so I couldn't easily terminate the processes it was launching. And then it tells me I can buy some special software to fix my computer - just give them my credit card!
