    What a strange article. What is it supposed to mean with a quote like, "It could be anything from a malicious advertising network to an attempt to create a botnet."? It sounds like the author of the (undated) article is guessing about what's going on.

    That's not to say there haven't been malware attempts on Androids like the Geinimi Trojan announced this week. At least that article provides some background and allows the reader to make some sort of risk assessment with comments like:

    It's possible the article you linked to is talking about the same thing, but it's impossible to tell given the poor quality of the article.

    sounds like the virus attacking hasent released what its going to do yet. To me it seems they are infected as many devices as it can first, before releasing what it intends on doing. Thats why it states maybe a malicious advertising network to an attempt to create a botnet. Seems they do know the devices infected are communicating with a remote computer. The bad part is all the information is being stolen, which is bad news for real. Hopefully they stop this sooner then later.

    webOS is WIDE open people... thus the large amount of homebrewing. Heck with a phone that is left open we could possibly extract the databases...

    Once the phone matures a little more security will become a bigger issue/bird to fry...

    Why do you think blackberries are so popular with corp? they are a little more secure.

    The Next "evolution" of webOS should be security.(I hope)

    HP bought companies specializing in security after buying Palm. See HP, the dark horse of 2010 - CXOtoday.com
