All the apps run in their own JVM. The problem is this app gets installed and has permissions to do other things like text and use bluetooth.

When it comes down to it, it's really just user error.

This makes more sense, i always felt that app's were ran securely on their own in a 'safety net' thumb.gif

Pathetic?, no.
If somebody has the talent to create these then they have talent that could be put to good use should somebody put up the coin.
The only problem here is somebody hasn't offered them money or enough money to be on the 'good' side.

In this kind of a world it's currency > morals...

Yup! A couple stunts like this and this hacker will have a decent resume. Then he can work for Microsoft or Facebook or maybe even the military etc. Lots of money to be made for someone so talented.
