21 Apps Pulled out of Android Market by Google

Google has pulled out 21 applications from Android Market after being notified about the malware threat by the Android Police. The fear with the 21 applications was that after installation the apps have access to personal and private data. Additionally, it is capable of downloading code without the user’s consent or knowledge.

Many users use these applications because they are free and are private versions of popular games and utilities. However, once the application is downloaded and installed, it was reported, that the app roots the device, uses an Android executable file (APK) to gain access to user and device data. The app then makes the device download malicious code.

Though Google has acted responsibly by pulling the apps out immediately after they were notified, the fate of 50,000 users that have already installed the applications still remains on the balance.

The following is the list of apps that have been pulled out by Google: Falling Down, Super Guitar Solo, Super History Eraser, Photo Editor, Super Ringtone Maker, Super Sex Positions, Hot Sexy Videos, Chess, 下坠滚球_Falldown, Hilton Sex Sound, Screaming Sexy Japanese Girls, Falling Ball Dodge, Scientific Calculator, Dice Roller, 躲避弹球, Advanced Currency Converter, APP Uninstaller, 几何战机_PewPew, Funny Paint, Spider Man, and 蜘蛛侠.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
