Google has been removed from your store, but those that have already been installed must remove it from their phones so that their data is not at risk
Finding a virus on a mobile phone is more complicated than on a computer. If programmers of this type of threat on the PC try to hijack the computer, slow down or redirect it to some websites with fraudulent content, in smart phones the philosophy is completely different: what they want is to divert the data from the terminals to secret administrators and to do with them what they want.
Because this bypass operation is quiet, consumers do not know if their device is infected or not. And that's what happened only with a huge connection of malware that has happened in Android.
According to NDTV, Google has erased 13 applications from the Google Play store because they presented what they did not. They all looked like cars or motorcycle racing games, for free, but in fact they are Trojan horses who have introduced malware programs into phones.
And while Google has deleted these apps from the store, it does not mean that they continue to harm with their viruses. If they are installed on a smart phone, it means that the device is affected. So, if you have one of this application on your mobile phone, delete it:
– Luxury Car SUV Traffic
– Car Driver Simulator
– Car Exceptional Racing
– Ancient Cross Racing Motorcycle
– SUV City Climbing Park
– Promotional City of Car Driving
– City Traffic Motorcycle Racing
– Driving Extreme Play Car
– Hyper Car Driver Simulator
– Truck Cargo Simulator
– SUV 4 × 4 Driver Simulator
– Fire Truck Simulator
– Luxury Car Parking
Unlike other malware attacks, these applications were quite popular. Over 560,000 people were downloaded before they were removed from the store, and even reached Google Play's "trends" section before they were deleted.
All these applications are the work of the same developer, one Luiz O. Pinto. When the user installed any of these applications, the app icon was hidden and users were asked to install an additional program of the "Game Game" which was likely to have no functionality other than having the data to system and telephone. That is, install the virus itself.
