…all the relevant malware they’ve seen uses exploits that are restricted to Android OS 2.2 and below…

[Update: Just spotted another useful blog, this time by Vanja Svajcer, on the Aftermath of the Droid Dream Android Market malware attack.]

Further to my post yesterday about Android malware, there's an additional resource by Costin Raiu and Denis Maslennikov that you may find interesting and useful, if you have a slightly techie turn of mind.

If not, you may be reassured by the fact that all the relevant malware they've seen uses exploits that are restricted to Android OS 2.2 and below: if you have 2.3, apparently known to its friends as Gingerbread, you should be OK as far as this particular spate of malware is concerned.
