Android: shady security apps

Useful interview with ESET’s Lukáš Štefanko, following up on his article on near- or completely-useless Android apps. Makes some very good points.

Fake or not fake – that is the question

“ESET’s analysis of shady apps pretending to be security – or “antivirus” – apps that were discovered on Google Play left some questions unanswered. Lukáš Štefanko, who did the research, speaks about its wider consequences.”
