Seems like Google can’t catch a break when it comes to booting malware from its Play Store. The official source of Android apps recently removed 13 apps from its listings since they were malware disguised as apps. This comes after an ESET security Researcher Lukas Stefanko tweeted about these apps, demonstrating how they were fake and would hide their app icons on a device after being downloaded and installed. These apps would download another APK in the background called ‘Game Center’ and ask the user to install it. Once installed, this app too hides in the background and displays ads when the device is unlocked.
