Avast Finds 47 Dangerous Games Out on the Google Play Store


Avast recently made a report finding dangerous games circulating on the Google Play Store. According to a report made by the antivirus company, at least 47 malicious Android games containing Adware were found circulating in the Play Store.

The game looks convincing but behind the game there is a malicious program, namely Adware. The adware actually makes the user’s Android smartphone continue to display advertisements because it has been infiltrated by the malicious program.

Of the 47 games mentioned in the report, there are still 17 games circulating on the Google Play Store and even 15 games that fall into the popular category and have been downloaded by 15 million users. One of Avast’s researchers, Jakub Varva said that this type of adware is very difficult to detect, this is because the way they work is very complicated.

“Campaigns like HiddenAds can enter the Play Store by obscuring their true purpose or slowly introducing malicious features once downloaded by users,” said Jakub Varva.
