The Operating System itself is safe, however most breaches fall under one of 2 things
1) The actions of the user. Either installing pirated android applications with trojans or by ignoring android permission prompts
2) Poor development skills of the developer. Many attacks exploit holes left by 3rd party applications installed by the end user.
I dont believe there has been a widespread exploit in the core Android System since Cupcake (1.5), where a patch was released after determining that all Keystrokes were passed to a root shell. In a sense, if you composed a text message with the word "reboot" followed by the enter key, your phone will reboot. This was fixed within days.
