Judy Malware Has Infected 36.5 Million Android Smartphones Across the Globe

    


Judy Malware is a new virus spreading to Android smartphones across the globe. According to a security firm Checkpoint, the malware has already spread to nearly 36.5 million Android devices and can be found in 41 Android apps in Google Play Store. And nearly 4.5 million to 18.5 million downloads are seen for the infected apps from the time of infection. 

The Judy Malware is an auto ad-clicking malware, which automatically clicks ads when you're on the infected app. That said, the revenue for those apps will be increased big time with this tool. 

Hackers have silently infected the apps by creating a Control and Command server, which apparently can't be spotted on the Google Play's Protect tool Bouncer. The CheckPoint firm says that this malware is in the Google Play Store apps since years now and a South Korean company, ENISTUDIO Corp created this malware. 

So, to stay secured and away from these apps, check out the reviews for the app and game before downloading it. And if you find a bad review, then ignore the app.
