Just Android things: 150m phones, gadgets installed 'adware-ridden' mobe simulator games

The apps had been downloaded an estimated 111 million times, accordion to Check Point, and are the first known example of of malicious apps that bypass the Android sandbox to install malicious apps. "With such samples, detection rates of between 90 percent and 100 percent should be easily achieved by genuine and effective antimalware apps", AV-Comparatives said in its report. Check Point's findings state that capabilities of SimBad ranged from showing ads to opening a specific URL in the Web browser and exposing users to more malicious apps. Others were found by the researchers at AV-Comparatives to have had their malware reference databases last updated ages ago, rendering them useless when it comes to detecting emerging threats.
The results of the report are absurd: the antivirus apps are detected as malware and highlight the current situation of the Android antivirus sector, where the real IT security providers would be very few.
The company's test of the 250 apps contains a list of the best-performing Android security apps. In fact, a new APK update for the Google Play Store was released yesterday.
Check Point thought that the makers deceived app developers into using the malicious SDK.
Previously users had only single control but starting with Android Q now, users have their own access to an app that asks for location data that has to be granted for proper functioning. Instead, they used simple white/blacklists to tag apps. Sometimes, the reviews can be faked, AV-Comparatives said.
There can be risks in using whitelists. The researchers recommend using apps only of well-known, verified, and reputable vendors.
Some apps would even block themselves, in instances when the devs would forget to whitelist themselves.
AV Comparatives says a handful of apps it tested have now been flagged by other security software as Trojans or "potentially unwanted applications", a category reserved for apps that may have some legitimate functionality but also sport other, questionable features, such as bombarding users with ads.
Google noted that it strives to improve the process and detect faulty apps before issues appear and more steps will be taken in the future to increase the security and quality of the apps which are present on the Play Stoe.
