Google Play Store 34 more apps infected with Malware.

Another cleanup has been reported in the Google Play Store, where 34 such apps were removed from the platform which had malware. It is not the first time but has happened a lot in the last few months. Just a few days back Google Play Store removed 17 apps as they were infected by the Joker Malware. Now another 34 apps have been removed because they were found to be infected with Malware. It seems that Google has become proactive in removing all the apps from the platform which seem to be infected by malware.

Most of these apps are also infected by the much known Joker Malware and is using an old technique to convert the conventional PC threat to something that can be used on the mobile platform as well. The malware infected at least 11 and an additional 6 apps later in the month of September after it came under the radar of California-based IT security company Zscaler. The list of apps that have been affected by it and have been removed is listed below.
