F-Secure researchers recently found malware in the Android Market disguised as free versions of popular games.

"The Trojanized games have been uploaded by a company calling itself Eldar Limited," writes ZDNet's Adrian Kingsley-Hughes.

"These have now been removed by Google, but their appearance in the official Android Market in the first place is worrying," Kingsley-Hughes writes. "Not only is Google putting Android users into contact with malware, it is also allowing the brand names of reputable companies to be tarnished by letting the bad guys upload this stuff to the Android Market in the first place."
