Google removes porn malware apps from the Play Store
By: Tom Manning - January 12, 2018

Google has removed more than 60 gaming apps from the Google Play Store that contained malware. The malware, named AdultSwine, was discovered by a security firm, Check Point. It contained "highly pornographic" material that infected the games, many of which were aimed at kids. The apps were downloaded more than 3 million times.

The infected apps included titles like Mcqueen Car Racing Game, Subway Banana Run Surf, and Paw Puppy Run Subway Surf.

Google did the right thing in removing the apps, but they need to do a better job of protecting Android users against this kind of malware.
