You might think you're keeping the attacks of cybercriminals at bay by downloading an antivirus program for your mobile, but they're actually one step ahead of you on this one. And that's because instead of going after you, they're making you come to them by concealing their viruses inside fake antivirus mobile apps.
Researchers from security firm AegisLab made the discovery recently when they looked through Google's Play marketplace and found a number of fake and infected antivirus apps.
It's unfortunate, considering that the apps are actually available for download from an official application store.
Here are some important things to remember when it comes to downloading apps: only download applications from known and trusted publishers and avoid secondary app marketplaces at all costs.
