Help Net Security is reporting that malware can be delivered to an Android device via steganographic techniques.  The exploit works by disguising the malware in an encrypted image file. Some obfuscated code is included in the APK to extract the malware from the image. The slides and paperfrom Black Hat presentation are available for more information. The usual warning applies here: Get your trusted apps from trusted sources.
