Google’s Play Store is a home for millions of apps that go through security checks to make sure that they are safe to download and use, however, some few harmful apps inevitably slip through.
Luckily, Google isn’t the only company that’s on the lookout for mischievous apps. Cybersecurity companies like Evina are also searching and testing apps for any malware that might be lurking inside.
After the apps are flagged, they are removed from the Google Play Store, but if you happen to have any on your device, it’s time to delete them.
Here is the list:-
The malware works by use of a popular phishing and keystrokes checking. For instance, when the user launches an app like Facebook, the app quickly opens a new browser tab with a fake Facebook login page and displays it on top of the app that was initially launched. Users would then put in their Facebook login details and the malware would copy them and send them to its designated server.
For some people, it is easy to spot these compromised apps. However, the majority of people might not be able to see them, and will likely have their Facebook credentials compromised.
