Android WARNING: Terrifying malware discovered on Google Play Store, be on ALERT

Android WARNING: Terrifying malware discovered on Google Play Store, be on ALERT

"As has been previously reported, some versions of the Android malware were present in the Google Play Store". The latest update for Google Play Services sports the 16.7.94 version number and it can now be installed only by beta Android users.

Android is one of the most widely used pieces of software, with over two billion devices running the Google mobile OS each and every month. One notable example is Tasker, with the developers complaining that the app confusingly wasn't part of Google's list of exceptions at the time. Google's review process has historically been faster than Apple's for iOS apps in the App Store.

When Google began enforcing the new SMS and Call Log policies, the feedback from developers expressed frustration over the decision-making process. Google says its enforcement effort has resulted in a 98 percent decline in the number of apps with access to sensitive user information.

Google yesterday announced some policy changes related to Play Store app review process to improve the overall quality of apps available for consumers.

EC curbs campaigning by Yogi, Mayawati, Maneka and Azam
Mayawati was issued the notice for her speech in Deoband in which she appealed to Muslims to not vote for the Congress. She said she did not get a proper hearing before the EC ban nor was she provided a CD of the statement as requested.

Developer concerns center on three key themes, including the permission declaration forms they had to submit; complaints that Google was taking too long to provide answers about reviews and appeals; and the sense that there weren't any actual humans involved in the decision-making process.

Emails sent for policy rejections and appeals will now be more detailed and explanatory, touching upon why a decision was made, how the app can be modified to comply, and how the decision could be appealed. Each appeal will be "carefully reviewed by a person on our team", according to Google.

Decisions appeared to be automated, and it was hard to "reach a human at Google" who could provide policy details and appreciate new use cases proposed by developers. Openness in such scenarios is not a possibility, as that opens up the possibility of these developers gaming the system and finding loopholes to exploit.
