Malware is nothing new for Android users to deal with, and mobile users in general for that matter. In fact all platforms have their issues with Malware. However there is a new one out there that is currently masquerading as an emulator for Nintendo games. What’s even worse is that it basically makes you pay for it, and then proceeds to steal your data at the same time.
Every so often we have to issue one of these PSA (public service announcement) notices about either a developer offering up a ridiculous amount of fake apps and games or about the fake apps and games themselves. Usually these fake apps and games are either laced with malware or try to get unfortunately people who think they have the correct game or app installed to dish out money for it.
From time to time some ass hat has to go ripping off other peoples work in order to further their idiotic attempt at infecting as many Android devices with malware as they can. It is one of the drawbacks we have to deal with once in awhile with having an open market place and usually things are pretty decent. A newly found developer going by the name of ‘apkdeveloper’ however who is trying to do exactly that.
A lot of people like to use Chainfire3D to get games that normally wouldn’t run on their Android device for whatever reason, usually due to particular devices or chipsets not being supported by the game. Well the developer of Chainfire3D and the SuperSU apps has issued a warning about repacked copies of both applications that are now floating around.
A developer going by the name of Logastrod has taken cloning popular games to a whole new level. Not only has this developer cloned a lot of the currently popular games out right now for Android, right down to the copy/pasting of descriptions from the actual games, but they also contain malware apparently.
