It was thought that "only" 600,000 phones got hacked, but it was a mistake.  Android users who have mistakenly downloaded and installed malware on their devices straight from the Google Play Store has reached 2 MILLION!

Dubbed FalseGuide by the Check Point researchers, the malware creates a "silent botnet out of the infected devices" to deliver fraudulent mobile adware and generate ad revenue for cybercriminals.

Nearly 2 Million Android Users Infected!


While initially it was believed that the oldest instance of FalseGuide was uploaded to the Google Play in February and made its way onto over 600,000 devices within two months, further in-depth analysis by researchers revealed more infected apps which date back to November 2016.
