    You're rehashing the same discussion you had with Hanson. Just get apps from the Play Store instead of from some Chinese hacker, and you're fine.

    Well, sort of, Sam. Making sense of it all:http://www.androidcentral.com/making-sense-latest-android-security-scare
    So it did affect Play but it is believed to be secure from it again. There are no known apps which were affected before the patch that are disclosed.
