Old Windows malware may have tampered with 132 Android apps
1 March 2017, 10:59 pm



More than 130 Android apps on the Google Play store have been found to contain malicious coding, possibly because the developers were using infected computers, according to security researchers.

The 132 apps were found generating hidden iframes, or an HTML document embedded inside a webpage, linking to two domains that have hosted malware, according to security firm Palo Alto Networks.

Google has already removed the apps from its Play store. But what's interesting is the developers behind the apps probably aren't to blame for including the malicious code, Palo Alto Networks said in a Wednesday blog post.
