Google had removed 9 applications from the Google Play Store after discovering that they were infested with the Joker malware. These 9 Android apps steal your Facebook account. These apps may have compromised the Facebook accounts of almost 60 lakh users.
According to Dr Web, these apps encourage users to connect to their Facebook accounts to remove advertisements, and when users enter their Facebook credentials, these apps collect the login ID and password.
Google pulled these nine apps from the Google Play Store, but millions of users still have these apps on their mobile phones. So if you have any of these apps, you should immediately uninstall them.
