Google building malware scanner for Google Play

Google will integrate a malware scanner in the Google Play application store for Android devices that may help prevent malicious apps from reaching end users, according to a report.There are two parts to the malware scanner: an "App Check" service that inspects all the device's applications already installed to determine whether any existing apps may harm the device or. The second part is a "doorman-style app blocker" that warns the user if an app about to be downloaded may be harmful, or has been flagged as suspicious.
