    The latest malware to hit Android phones, DroidKungFu, is a particularly nasty little blighter to say the least.

    It would appear that it only affects Android 2.2 and lower versions of firmware.

    It allows hackers to take control of your phone, steal data and can use it as part of a bot net, so these articles state:-

    The good news is that none of the affected app's are from the Market.

    The bad news is, "The current versions of anti-virus apps don’t detect this malware."
