Happy Friday my friend!
Over the past few weeks a hit list of 'Zombie' Apps were kicked off the Google Play store, but not before they got installed on over 2 million devices.
The Apps, mostly games, have malware embedded inside them that steals data from the phone, floods it with ads (to make the hackers money), re-directs you to fake investment websites, online casinos and can even sign you up for premium paid services without consent!
If you find any of the following Apps on an Android phone, be sure to uninstall them right away:
Super Skibydi Killer – 1,000,000 downloads
Agent Shooter – 500,000 downloads
Rainbow Stretch – 50,000 downloads
Rubber Punch 3D – 500,000 downloads
Eternal Maze (Yana Pospyelova) – 50,000 downloads
Jungle Jewels (Vaibhav Wable) – 10,000 downloads
Stellar Secrets (Pepperstocks) – 10,000 downloads
Fire Fruits (Sandr Sevill) – 10,000 downloads
Cowboy's Frontier (Precipice Game Studios) – 10,000 downloads
Enchanted Elixir (Acomadyi) – 10,000 downloads
Love Emoji Messenger (Korsinka Vimoipan) – 50,000 downloads
Beauty Wallpaper HD (fm0989184) – 1,000 downloads
If your phone is acting strange even after an uninstall, I recommend you restore it to factory settings.
Always be wary of "free" apps. There's always a catch and unfortunately Google and Apple have a hard time keeping up with the volume of bad actors publishing mobile Apps.
If you know someone who would find these updates useful, please consider forwarding this email - it might just save them from disaster.
Stay safe out there.
New Friday Funnies
How did the zombie become great a trick or treating?
