According to stories at mylookout.com there is a Trojan malware targeting Android devices. They are calling it "Geinimi". Reports say it permits a remote server to control an infected phone. It is being embedded in modified apps.

Lookout is in the business of selling solutions to this and their report may have a conflict of interest. According to discussions at slashdot the threat is not serious.
