Unfortunately, the malicious apps had been downloaded more than 50,000 times before they were pulled.

PCMagazine: Google has pulled 21 apps from the Android Market after the blog Android Police informed the company that the apps contained malware. However, during the four days that the apps were available, Android users downloaded them more than 50,000 times.

All the apps in question were published by a company called "Myournet." They contained a Trojan that could steal data from the phones and send it back to the hackers.

Google is currently working on a fix for users who downloaded the apps.
