Although Google uses an application scanner under the noember Bouncer, there is still a lot of malware in the Google Play Store. The company ESET has certainly discovered 30 such scareware programs in the past nine months.

Some of these fake programs require 4.80 euros per week via premium SMS to remove the alleged virus. Despite the fact that there are negative comments, the applications are downloaded 100, 000 to 500, 000 times.

The app store for Windows Phone also contains a lot of copied games and counterfeit apps, although not all of them are malware.
