From Trussville Tribune staff reports
A report from WVTM 13 says that more than 300 apps on Google Play Store have been infected with a type of malware that can drain a phone’s power, rendering it slow and the battery life short.
Advertisers affected by the software can lose anywhere from $62,000 to $214,000 a day.
Some apps found to have the malware were developed by Attunable, Classywall, Firamo, FlameryHot, NeonApp, Goopolo, Personalization, Litvinka Co, Liverypapir, Tuneatpa, Waterflo, X Soft and Zheka.
Google and its app developers are working to prevent malware, viruses, trojans and other malicious software from infiltrating their products.
