It wasn’t ticking ago that apple had a problem with Malware snuck inside genuine apps in the AppStore and now Android has a similar problem.
A new report claims Android developer Cheetah Mobile discovered that malware has been found in various app stores, including Google’s official Play Store.
As many as 900,000 devices in 116 countries seem to have been infected, and once installed on the device users have been apparently fooled into downloading fake versions of popular Android apps and then been subjected to a flood of advertisements which could have netted the hackers behind the attack with as much as $4 million.
Once installed on the device, the malware is proving very hard to remove. .
