The apps all had something to do with racing. If you have recently downloaded a racing game, you should check if you have not downloaded malware.

These are the following apps by developer Luiz O. Pinto:

  • Luxury Cars SUV Traffic
  • Car Driving Simulator
  • Extreme Car Driving Racing
  • Moto Cross Extreme Racing
  • SUV City Climb Parking
  • Extreme Car Driving City
  • City Traffic Moto Racing
  • Extreme Sport Car Driving
  • Hyper Car Driving Simulator
  • Truck Cargo Simulator
  • SUV 4 × 4 Driving Simulator
  • Firefighter – Fire Truck Simulator
  • Luxury Car Parking

When they started the apps they crashed immediately, but they already installed malware on your phone.

Many victims

The apps were installed more than 560,000 times together. Two of the apps were even trending on the Play Store.

If you have installed an infected app on your phone anyway, it’s a good idea to put your phone in airplane mode before deleting the app. Another way is to start your phone in safe mode and then remove the app. This way you avoid the app causing more damage.
Furthermore, it is also not a luxury to protect your phone against malware with specialized software. Avast Security is an example of this.
