Google To Begin Scanning Android Software for Malware

Google announced a new service codenamed Bouncer, which will scan submissions to the Android Market for malicious content.  This service is being introduced to deal with the increasing presence of Malware being submitted to the Market.  Google’s scanner could create hurdles for genuine app developers if a scenario presents itself where apps are falsely flagged as containing malicious content.  The addition of this new layer of security should encourage Android development however, as it will make users less weary when downloading apps from unknown developers.
