Researchers from the University of Sydney and independent Australian federal government agency CSIRO’s Data61 have discovered 2040 malware-laden counterfeit apps on Google Play Store. The team said that for two years, they investigated more than a million apps available on the Android app store. Researchers also found that some fake apps were malware-free but requested “dangerous” data access permissions. Games like Temple Run, Free Flow and Hill Climb Racing were among the most commonly counterfeited popular games.
