Google Play Store 9.3.30 and 9.4.18 now available”

Malwares infecting smartphones is a recurring problem.

Audiobooks have only been available on Google Play for barely two months, but Google is already working hard on improving the experience.

In response to the news that researchers have found that cybercriminals have distributed malware to hundreds of thousands of Android users by hiding it inside a series of apparently harmless apps on Google Play, Ondrej Kubovic, Security Awareness Specialist at ESET commented below.

Furthermore, the released information doesn't reveal the name of the apps. As per SophoLabs, this malware not only pops up advertising web pages, but can also sends Android notifications that include clickable links, to lure you into generating ad revenue for the criminals. On the Google Home app, audiobooks can also be added to a morning routine with Google Assistant, so saying "Ok Google, tell me about my day", on your commute to work will let you know about traffic, inform you of calendar appointments for the day, and continue playing the audiobook you're now reading. However, Sophos is still recommending users to depend on Google Play for all app installations despite the security breach as its multiple layers of scrutiny still makes it more competent than other third-party stores. We advise you to double-check the nature of apps, even while downloading from the PlayStore.
