Immediately Delete 38 Android Apps Before They Load up Your Phone With Malware

Spread the love

You remember we inform you about more than 60 Android apps with over 100 million Google Play downloads that were discovered to push invasive ads. And this was done without the user’s permission and gather a slew of sensitive information… all without notifying you or asking for permission? This time its about Delete 38 Android Apps.

While that particular security threat is now officially behind us all, the same McAfee researchers have discovered a new and extremely similar one that is wreaking havoc on tens of millions of Android devices around the world.


What is the issue and why to delete 38 Android apps?

Despite the fact that it is a member of the same huge and destructive adware family as the previously identified Goldoson infection. At first appearance, this HiddenAds campaign appears to be less destructive, accomplishing precisely what the name implies.

Specifically, it appears that around 35 million Android users worldwide have recently been served ads in the background of their mobile gaming sessions with the goal of generating illegal revenue for various shady companies and individuals.

That may not appear to have a significant impact on your user experience or data privacy, but anyone who has ever unintentionally installed this type of malware knows how inconvenient it can be to notice your phone slowing down, freezing, or crashing out of nowhere without being able to identify the culprit.


If you’ve recently encountered something similar, it’s probable that your mobile device is infected with “HiddenAds”… or a similar infection, especially if you periodically share such device with a youngster aged 5 to, say, 15.

That’s because every malicious programme discovered to be part of this adware gang emulates or, let’s be honest, outright rips off Mojang’s massively famous Minecraft game. We’re talking about remarkably similar names that employ the terms “block,” “diamond,” “craft,” “sword,” “monster,” “forest,” “builder,” and “rainbow” in slightly different ways to entice the most susceptible mobile customers.

If you’re considering dismissing this threat as insignificant and irrelevant, don’t.


That’s because the malicious Android apps listed above are listed in order of popularity, beginning with a title that has been downloaded more than 10 million times.

And continuing with three additional titles that have 5 million+ Google Play installations (each).

However, you must be extremely cautious about everything you or your child downloads from the official Play Store on a daily basis. Your phone might need a little spring cleaning. And as soon as possible! This is especially true if you live in the United States, Canada, South Korea, or Brazil, which appear to be the primary targets of this malware-spreading effort.

Google, for its part, appears to have completed its secondary mission of cleaning up the Play Store of these applications despite failing to achieve its core aim of keeping such risks at bay in the first place. But it won’t help if you don’t also find and remove these applications from your devices before they extend their tentacles and begin conducting other dubious background activities than pushing adverts for filthy money.
