android malware

After yesterday’s warning of Malware on Android due to its popularity. Today we got information via Android Police that according to new code found in the Google Play Store APK revealed Google’s plan to introduce Google Play Scanner which will scan for Malware.

According to AP Android application package (.APK) file released this week, strings including package_malware_title and package_malware_banner_warning with associated warnings such as: “Installing this app may harm your device” were discovered.

This new Play Scanner or the App Check is expected to work in conjunction with Bouncer, Google’s server-side malware guard. It probably will arrive in future versions of Android. So guys we need to take precaution measures in order to safeguard our data from Malware Apps.
