Google AdSense abused to distribute Android spyware

Well, that's the problem with Android, isn't it. No hosts file, at least not in the sense of something that you, the owner of the device, is able to control. It's seriously bad design. (Deliberately so, one presumes.)

(Disclosure: no axe to grind here, I understand that Apple kit is as bad or worse in this regard.)
