Google has removed them from your store, but those who have already installed it must remove it from their phones so that their data is not at risk
Finding a virus on a cell phone is more complicated than on a computer. If the computer developers of this type of threats try to hijack the computer, slow it down or simply redirect it to some websites with misleading content, the philosophy in the smartphones is quite different: what they want is to redirect the data from the terminals of secret servers and with them doing whatever they want.
Because this bypass operation is quiet, users do not know if their device is infectious or not. And that's exactly what happened with the massive malware infection that happened in Android.
According to NDTV, Google removed 13 apps from its Google Play Store because they were presented as they were not. They all looked like racing games on cars or motorcycles, completely free, but in reality they were Trojan horses that introduced malware programs into phones.
Even though Google has removed these applications from the store, that does not mean that they continue to do harm with their viruses. If they are installed on a smartphone, this means that the device is affected. So, if you have one of this application on your mobile phone, please delete it:
– Luxury cars SUV traffic
– Simulator for driving a car
– Extreme Car Drivers Racing
– Moto Cross Extreme racing
– SUV City climbs parking
– Extreme Car Driving City
– City Traffic Moto racing
– Extreme sports car driving
– Simulator for driving with hyper cars
– Simulator for cargo cargo
– SUV 4 × 4 Driving simulator
– Fire truck simulator
– Luxury parking
Unlike other malicious attacks, these applications were quite popular. More than 560,000 people downloaded them before being removed from the store, and two even reached the "Trends" section of Google Play before being deleted.
All these applications are the work of the same investor, one Louise O. Pinto. When the user installed one of these applications, the application icon was hidden and users were asked to install an additional program called "Game Center", which obviously had no functionality other than getting the data and system from the phone. That is, install the virus itself.
