Malware masquerading as Bad Piggies found on Google Play
Heard of the game Bad Pigs? Or is it Bad Piggies?
Some clever hacker decided to create a malicious app deceivingly similar to one of the top games in the Google Play store. And, it was downloaded more than 10,000 times before people took notice.
Security company F-Secure wrote on Wednesday that it had located Bad Pigs -- which had the same artwork and app description as Bad Piggies -- and let Google know. The only apparent differences between the two apps were the names of the app and the developer -- who was "Dan Stokes" rather than Rovio. Google has pulled Bad Pigs from Google Play, according to F-Secure.
