Beware! New Malware Has Been Discovered On Google Playstore

Beware! New malware has been discovered on playstore which has currently affected more than 40 applications on Google Playstore and more than 500 applications on unofficial appstore despite that Google Playstore is the most secured store to download applications for Android device. In case you want to the meaning of malware, it is an "umbrella term used to refer to a variety of forms of hostile or intrusive software, including computer viruses, worms, trojan horses, ransomware, spyware, adware, scareware, and other malicious programs. It can take the form of executable code, scripts, active content, and other software.".

Well, I don't actually know how this malware got to creep into Google Playstore which have successfully affected many applications. This malware is called Dresscode. This malware will create a so called botnet. The attackers are able to use infected devices to route traffic through them. Checkpoint says, the hackers only use it to generate false ad traffics and click and for collecting ad revenue. However, a botnet who is this malware can be used for more serious attacks I.e getting access to companys server and files.

So even though the malware has power to generate ad clicks and traffics, you still have the power to stop to from it from running on your device background orelse it will affect your device performance. So make sure your device has the latest security patch installed and be careful of what ou download from Google playstore or appstores.

  6. I don't know why people easily get fooled by some secrete organisations or group of people. .. blazer tell me are google not responsible for issuing ads services to Android platform? Jst bkos Dresscode decided no
    t to use google ads service they are now being called "malware" blazer even ur site contains ads so u see without ads how can u get paid for all ur effort to the people? Dresscode saw that Google ads service isn't meeting up with their demands that was why they make a move and mind you Dresscode is a Nigerian app develop in ur country, so if they like let dem say is "gigaware" na him I dey use till date patronise ur made in Naija app less dependant from the white people for every app, soon they will call AbokiForeX app a malware"...

    AbokiForex is an app were we get to know the latest price of foreign currencies instead of depending on google search engine to convert it for us soon dey will call it a "malware" too just watche-out....its a matter of time.

  7. Dresscode is never a malware...
