Google still faces malicious Android apps that manage to slip out of the Play Store despite improvements has done recently in the security code.

Εν προκειμένω, η εταιρεία απέσυρε πρόσφατα από το Play Store 29 εφαρμογές για κάμερες και φωτογραφίες αφού κατέστη σαφές ότι προορίζονταν να προωθήσουν ενοχλητικές διαφημίσεις, απατεώνες και ακόμη να κλέψουν περιεχόμενο. Οι εφαρμογές αυτές προωθούσαν διαφημίσεις πλήρους , συμπεριλαμβανομένης της πορνογραφίας, ενώ μερικές εξ αυτών εκτελούσαν απάτες ηλεκτρονικού “ψαρέματος” (phishing) για να κλέβουν προσωπικές σας πληροφορίες με το πρόσχημα των διαγωνισμών.

Another group of photography applications claimed that it could beautify your photos, but in reality it just stole the photos you were uploading.

According to Trend Micro, applications used multiple aka packers to prevent analysis, as well as deep encryption for remote servers. There is also the possibility that you will find it difficult to delete them.

The problem is that these apps were quite popular before them Google. In total, 11 of the apps have been downloaded more than 100.000 times, and three of them more than a million times, which means that the victims are many.

And as we have said before, since Google can not find a way to catch these applications at birth, for every application you download you should watch it and keep in mind for suspicious moves.
