"On Tuesday evening, the Android team was made aware of a number of malicious applications published to Android Market. Within minutes of becoming aware, we identified and removed the malicious applications."
It is very reassuring to see Google taking these steps after their little Market security oopsie the other day. My biggest concern wasn't removing the malware from the phones so much as cleaning up the rooting and other bad things the malware did to your device while it was installed. I'm glad they pushed out this security update and even more impressed that they are actually contacting affected users. It still doesn't excuse the fact that something like this should have never happened in the first place but definitely a good step in righting their wrong.
