It looks like people are watching and these things are being caught fairly quickly, but it certainly is worrisome that they are getting through at all. I guess, for safety sake, it's best to not grab any flashy new apps. Wait a little while to make sure they pass third party tests because Google's internal testing seems to be lacking at the moment.
