Google has removed another set of applications that were harmful in Google Play. However, removing apps from the store does not automatically remove it from your phone.
These security flaws in the marketplace are not solely the fault of Google. The company continues to protect applications that contain users’ personal data, but developers continue to find new ways to bypass them.
These 25 identified applications stole user data from Facebook. This threat was identified by French cybersecurity firm Evina. They reported it to Google, even though some applications already had reports of harmful activity.
“We forced Google to close these applications. Evina successfully re-engineered the malware that allowed us to protect end-users,” the company said.
To increase the reach of infected devices, hackers created a lot of different applications that are not connected in one direction.
