The Play Store is gangled to keep its site clean in 2018. According to ESET, Google has now removed 13 fake apps that have access to in-store games and passed malware to Android-based smartphones.
The apps asked for full access to the phone to steal personal data from the device.
According to researcher Lucas Stephanko, the 13 applications are installed more than 580,000 times in smartphones, in addition to two of them being highlighted as "trend". By downloading these apps, they just did not run: they asked for full access to the phone to steal personal data from the device.
According to Stephanko, all these apps were from an alleged developer named "Louise O Pinto". It was possible to find out that the domain of the developer was spreading malware and directed to a man in Istanbul called Mert Ozec.
In just a year, Google was able to remove around 700,000 malicious apps from the Play Store. We expect the number to decline in 2019: not for lack of care in disposal, but for extra caution on entry approval.
