Android Malware Google Play

Over 3,000,000 people downloaded a new Android malware family from the Google Play Store that discreetly subscribes users to premium services.

Maxime Ingrao, an Evina security researcher, found the virus, known as “Autolycos,” in at least eight Android applications, six of which have been taken down by the Google Play Store.

At the same time, the other two are still available at the time of this writing.

In the Play Store, KellyTech’s “Funny Camera,” which has had over 500,000 installs, and rxcheldiolola’s “Razer Keyboard & Theme,” which has received over 50,000 instals, are the two remaining apps.
