Android Malware Charges For Flash Player
Fake (malicious) Flash Player apps for Android are nothing new. It’s very typical bait.
But recently, we came across a “Flash Installer” whose audacity is off the scale.
The so-called installers are dropped by other Android malware and look like this:
When the app is opened, the user is prompted to pay five bucks!
And what do you get if you pay? A download link for Adobe Flash Player 188.8.131.52 at adobe.com! That’s right. Pay five bucks and you’ll receive a download link to the authentic source.
Biggest. Ripoff. Ever.
You can also pay for download links to a YouTube MP3 downloader and Flappy Bird.
