Malware On Adroid Phones Is Being Deleted And Fixed By Kill Software In An Update

Turns out that 260,000 devices downloaded the 58 apps with malware from the Android app store, not the 50,000 initially reported by Google.
That's pretty scary since the apps included a free chess game, and that at leats some verion of the malware reportedly contained a trojan that downloaded your personal ID and other information and was waiting for commands from their inventor.
Happily, Google Sunday night emailed Android users letting them know a fix was on the way and that, if they update their phones with this patch, it would disable and delete the malware.
