Security flaw opens all modern Android devices to “zombie botnet” takeover

A device affected by this exploit could …become a part of a botnet, eavesdrop with the microphone, export your data to a third party, encrypt your data and hold it hostage, use your device as a stepping stone to another network, attack your connected PC, send premium SMS messages, perform a DDoS attack against a target, or wipe your device.

And the coups de grĂ¢ce:

The Android malware ecosystem is beginning to resemble to that which surrounds Windows.

Ouch.
