Malware on Android is not new anymore but this time adware has taken over Google play with approx 10 million downloads. Avast researchers have identified three apps that might have millions of downloads. The apps identified are “Durak card game app”, “IQ Test” app and “Russian History” app from three different developers performing the same adware installation.
Durak card game app alone has 5 to 10 million installs, and the combination of all the three apps have more than 15 Million installs, according to the data on Google Play Store.
“When you install Durak, it seems to be a completely normal and well working gaming app,” says Avast researcher Filip Chytry. “This was the same for the other apps, which included an IQ test and a history app. This impression remains until you reboot your device and wait for a couple of days. After a week, you might start to feel there is something wrong with your device.“
