Kaspersky Cam Scanner Malicious App

Kaspersky: Dangerous Trojan being distributed through app via malicious advertisement program

“It’s not often that we see an app with a loyal user base and such a large number of installations is distributing malicious components. Given the positive reviews on the Google Play app page and the fact that security researchers did not previously detect malicious activity, it looks like the malicious modules were added into the app with one of its updates. In a nutshell, this is yet another example of the fact that it is important for consumers to reliably protect your devices even if you use only official sources to download software”, – Igor Golovin, a security researcher at Kaspersky.
