Google removes them from your store, but those who have already installed it must be removed from their phones so their data is not compromised.
Finding a virus in a cell phone is more complicated than a computer. If the computer threatening programmers like to hijack the computer, slowing it down, or simply redirecting it to some websites with fraudulent content, the philosophy of smartphones is completely different: they want to transfer data from the terminals to the secret servers and do with the ones they want.
As this bypass is silent, users are not aware of whether their device is infected or not. And that's precisely what happened to the big spread of malware on Android.
According to NDTV data, Google removed 13 applications from its Google Play store, as they were not. They all looked like motorcycle or motorcycle racing games, totally free, but in reality they were Trojan horses who introduced malware on their phones.
And while Google has removed these apps from the store, that does not mean they continue to damage their viruses. If they are installed on a smartphone, this means that the device is affected. So, if your mobile device has one of these applications, please delete it:
– luxury SUV traffic
– car driver simulator
– Extreme car ride
– Moto Cross Extreme racing game
– SUV City Climb Parking
– Extreme car driving city
– City Motor Racing
– Extreme Sport Auto Driving
– Hyper car driving simulator
– Cargo Truck Simulator
SUV 4 × 4 driving simulator
Fire fighting simulator
– luxurious parking lot
Unlike other malware attacks, these applications were quite popular. More than 560,000 users downloaded them before they were removed from the store, and two of them reached the "trends" in the Google Play section before shutting down.
All of these applications are the work of the same developer Luiz O. Pinto. When the user installed one of these applications, the app icon was hidden, and users were asked to install an additional program called Game Center, which apparently had no other function than to obtain data and the system from the phone. That is, install the virus itself.
