Google Play Store: 56 new malicious apps found

The Google Play Store is currently the world's largest and most popular shop for mobile applications, which is installed as standard on almost all Android smartphones.

The Play Store has billions of users, which of course also makes it a target for cybercriminals. Unfortunately, Google is not known for the best security. Therefore, 56 new malicious apps have been found there again.

Despite intensive efforts, Google simply cannot keep malware developers off its Play Store. The company is implementing newer protective measures, but the developers always seem to be one step ahead of the company.

This is confirmed by the latest report from Check Point Research , which has been dealing with cybersecurity for years. It reads that they recently discovered 56 malicious adware applications (known as "Tekya") in Google Play that easily bypassed Google Play Protect system security.

The process was limited to mimicking clicks on ads that generated substantial revenue. The applications described can be found in various tools, from pocket calculators to translators. The full list of malicious "Tekya" applications discovered by Check Point Research is as follows:
