Report: Google Play Store infested with 2,000 malware-laden apps

Jun 30, 2019 19:26 IST

Researchers claim they've found over 2,000 malware-ridden apps present on the Android app store, all of which are counterfeits of popular apps already present on the store. Reports state the research was conducted using Artificial intelligence, and revealed there were many apps with visually similar icons to 10,000 of the most popular apps on the Google Play Store. To be fair, Google is constantly working to eradicate malware from its Play Store, using Google Play Protect.
