Google adds evil-code scanning to Play Store

Vector

Huh?

"Google has made efforts in the past to limit malware - with some success - but third-party Android marketplaces still contains huge amounts of dodgy code. The new malware scanning should help that, and better protect customers who spend billions of dollars each year in the Play Store."

How, precisely, is Google scanning the Play Store going to affect the third party marketplaces?
