BEWARE: 10 million Android users became victims of money-stealing apps from the Play Store

Android-security

GriftHorse, an Android Trojan that was first spotted in November 2020, has spread over apps at Google Play and third-party stores with more than 10 million Android users have fallen victim to date, according to researchers from Zimperium Labs.

So far, Zimperium has listed up to 130 apps that come with GriftHorse. These apps look innocent enough based on their store description and required permissions, but once installed they secretly bill users who won’t notice until they see their next bill. The hidden charge can go up to $42 (approx. Php2,130) each month.
