I doubt the virus story too. If the wallpapers grabbed personal info, they were spyware/trojans...not viruses. A virus is more evil because the user may not have a chance to stop it. On the other hand, the user can and should keep an eye on what privileges they grant to their apps when installing to prevent spyware trojans.
