XDA Forum Mod AllGamer told us about an important alert regarding malware found on 56 applications on the Android market that steals your information and downloads additional files and programs to your phone. According to the source, Google has taken all of them down but if you have any of these apps, it´s recommended to uninstall them to avoid unwanted stuff on your device. The original thread contains the names of all the applications such as the ones developed by “Myournet”, “Kingmall2010″ and “we20090202″.
Of course, it´s up to you what to leave and what to delete but at least it´s important that you are aware of this issue.
