Building on Verify apps, which already protects people when they’re installing apps outside of Google Play at the time of installation, we’re rolling out a new enhancement which will now continually check devices to make sure that all apps are behaving in a safe manner, even after installation. In the last year, the foundation of this service—Verify apps—has been used more than 4 billion times to check apps at the time of install. This enhancement will take that protection even further, using Android’s powerful app scanning system developed by the Android security and Safe Browsing teams."
Now that I'm on the Nexus 5, rather than use a custom ROM I've just rooted the phone and used the Xposed framework and the GravityBox. It's much more stable than Cyanogenmod was for me, and the only thing I'm really missing is Cyanogenmod's app permission system. I've re-enable App Ops on the Nexus 5 using Xposed, but it just isn't as good.
On the other hand, I'm just not sure if I want to go back to Cyanogenmod's brutal development cycle just for a better app permission system. I'd probably go back if they switched to a sane development cycle like OpenBSD. I'm not holding my breath, though.
