Android Security Tool 'Trojanized' [news.cnet.com]

Suspicious code is lurking in a repackaged Chinese version of a tool Google released last weekend to remotely clean malicious apps off Android phones, Symantec said today.

Now, Symantec says someone appears to have taken the "Android Market Security Tool" used to clean up the devices infected with the malware, repackaged it and inserted code in it that seems to be able to send SMS messages if instructed by a command-and-control server.
