Google Play advertised malicious applications

Every year the number of malicious programs for Android only increases. In just one last year, Google Play discovered and deleted 700,000 such applications. However, it is not possible to identify such programs on time.
The other day it became known that the two “Races” games that had been hanging on the main page of Google Play for some time contained malicious software that allows fraudsters to control the entire flow of Internet traffic. For a short time, more than half a million users have downloaded malicious games on their smartphones.
By the way, the computer security company G Data considered that almost 12 thousand malicious programs appear every day in the world.
