Recently, Cyber Security Bureau found more 17 apps with the same Malware.
This Malware can sneak files into the user’s device.
Which makes it easy for a hacker to hack your smartphone and collect your sensitive data like bank details, photos, and many more.
Here is the list of Apps in which Malware was found, and Google has removed from its Google Play Store:
- Push Message – Texting & SMS

If you have downloaded any of these apps, then uninstall it as soon as you can to make you and your data unsafe.
It is expected for this Malware to come back soon in some other applications because it is very tricky to spot this Malware.
