Don’t pay for what is for free: Malicious Adobe Flash Player app found on Google Play
Based on ESET’s notice, Google has removed another malicious app from its official Android app store. It had received 100,000-500,000 downloads since November 2016.
Unlike typical downloaders, ransomware and similar nasty stuff, this app – named F11 – did not contain any harmful code. Instead, it relied purely on social engineering, tricking users into paying €18 ($19) for Adobe Flash Player.
