    Remember all the malware discussed is Windoze malware as long as the PCs you are connecting to either don't run windows or have protection you'd be fine.

    The Android devices are only functioning as a conduit for the malware just as any other USB storage device could be.

    lol, the malware can only run on windows, and i think every phone with a sdcard can will have the same issue, not only the HTC Magic.

    Iphone and symbian suffer viruses.

    From the malware 'experiment' detailed on the register, Android isnt imune ;)
