Nine Google Play Apps With More Than 470K Downloads Can Access Your Facebook and Google Accounts

The Infinite Brief
Researchers on Thursday documented two new malware campaigns targeting Android users.

The first involved nine apps that had been downloaded from Google Play more than 470,000 times.

Once installed, the apps could log in to users’ Facebook and Google accounts to perform ad fraud.

The campaign was most active in Japan, Taiwan, the United States, India, and Thailand.
