Google Pulls 22 New Malicious Android Apps From Play Store

Google Play Store removes 22 Apps generated fake ad clicks

If your answer to the question above is "five minutes ago" or "right now", it's time for an upgrade. This is because Google will no longer be issuing security updates or bug fixes to the Google Play Store and Google Play Services. It can be said that through these activities, even the apps that appear to be safe could become malicious with just a simple update.

That's not to say people don't still use the operating system.

Google announced that it had made a decision to abandon further support all electronic devices running on Android operating system 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Pour one out for ol' ICS - it earned it.

Google recommends Android developers target API level 16 as the minimum supported level. Reports are now surfacing that Google has now pulled another batch of 22 apps from the Google Play Store that had been downloaded over 2 million times cumulatively.

Out of all the monthly active Android users, about 2 billion+, a lot of them presently run on Android 7.0 Nougat, with many others also using Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Android 8.0 Oreo. According to official figures from Google, now only less than 1% of the total number of Android devices run on the operating system Ice Cream Sandwich, while all the others use the newer software, which will be carried out at least during one year. It's unclear how many developers will take the company up on that idea due to the relatively small market share for Android 4.0 devices. It was launched alongside the Galaxy Nexus and marked a significant overhaul in Google's design language as well.

Google warned developers to remove the BatMobi, AltaMob, and YeahMobi third-party ad network SDKs which use install attribution abuse techniques while recommending the use of the Google Play Install Referrer API for measuring app install ads.

There are still a number of Android driven e-readers that use ICS. His articles have been picked up by major and local news sources and websites such as the CNET, Engadget, Huffington Post and Verge.
