Slashgear reports that the Android Market Web Store contains a potentially dangerous security hole.

The hole could allow hackers to purchase apps without the user's knowledge or install malware on a device. According to the article, Google account information is the only thing needed for someone to start buying applications.

Security blogger Vanja Svajcer says the user should set their handset to require the approval of each download.
