Google's Security Tool Infected with Trojan

The H Open is reporting today that Google's Android Market Security Tool has been infected with a trojan.

"It's pretty bold and a cunning coup; criminals have installed a trojan in the Android Market Security Tool that Google is distributing to delete the contaminated apps that recently popped up on the Android Market. As users have been told to expect to see the application running on their phones clearing up the damage the Droiddream trojan did, there's a good chance they won't be suspicious of it," The H Open reported.

Apparently the trojan is only circulating on an "un-regulated third-party Chinese marketplace" and it's only affecting one particular Chinese mobile network.
