    Malicious wallpaper app affects millions of Android handsets [Electronista]
    Aside from providing backgrounds, the utility quietly collects personal information such as SIM card numbers, text messages, subscriber identification, and voicemail passwords. The data is then sent to (redacted), a site that hails from Shenzhen, China.

    In other news… the malware count for the iPhone remains at a steady ZERO.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    It's good that in order for apps to be approved that they have to go through Apple. It's a win-and-lose process, but this example makes you thankful Apple does check the Apps that go into it's App Store.
