Today Japanese police arrested five developers for embedding a virus into their Android apps. It’s no secret that a lot of apps on Android are suspect and often scummy, but what is a surprise is how many people they fooled: according to Japanese police, who initially suspected only 90,000 infections, apparently these guys collected 10 million separate pieces of information from their series of apps. According to Google Play, some apps have been downloaded 270,000 times. The worst part is how they got people to download their virus-ridden software: they simply took names of popular games, and added “The Movie” to the end. So, for instance, “Angry Birds: The Movie.” Guys, if you’re going to download an app, you should probably Google it and see whether it has any value before your let it see what’s on your phone.
