Google Play and Microsoft Stores Delete Suspected Compromised Apps

Google Play and Microsoft Stores Delete Suspected Compromised Apps (Malware and Vulnerabilities)

Recently, Google Play Store and Microsoft Store both deleted multiple applications from their online stores, because the apps were malicious. Cryptojacking is a type of malicious activity that uses someone else’s device for illegally mining cryptocurrency—in this case, your device, if you installed one or more of these apps. With reports like these of malicious and fraudulent apps being posted on different online stores, users need to make sure their Android and Windows devices are secured from such threats. It proactively scans apps you wish to install from the Google Play Store and tells you if they’re safe. Similarly, Trend Micro Security (TMS) will protect you from malicious or infected apps on Windows machines. Apps downloaded from Microsoft Store are scanned by TMS on disk for malicious code or infections, during the installation process, and upon execution.
