Google removed 17 malicious apps from PlayStore, uploaded in September, trying to infect naive users with the Joker (aka Bread) malware. Zscaler was the first to spot these apps that were infected with Joker Malware.
As per the Google Security Blog, the Joker Malware has pretty much every shrouding and obscure method under the sun trying to go undetected and designed specifically to slip into the Play Store undiscovered.
The Bread Malware is reportedly accused of stealing details like contacts, SMSs, and device information from the user’s device.
If you are still wondering, what are the apps removed from Google Play Store?

Joker has been an intense competitor for Google in an enormous part because the crooks behind it continue tweaking the code, the execution cycle, and the strategies for carrying the payload.
While apps like these freak us about privacy; on the contrary, there are plenty of reliable and dedicated apps, and the good side is that it can deliver humane results.
With so many apps available, the overload of options and data, even a fairly mundane task like picking the right keyboard app, has more importance than it really does.
Talking of the keyboard app, one such regional keyboard app Marathi Keyboard with Marathi Stickers, changed my life for the better.
And now that privacy is a primary realm of concern, the keyboard app assures that information from and about you, like password, credit card number, debit card number, OTP, etc. are not stored respecting your privacy and security. It guarantees only the words you input are saved to the local dictionary for more solid predictions.
Despite a dark horse, it has already gained quite a massive number of Marathi users. It specializes in helping you connect with your beloved ones more naturally (with Marathi movie stickers, GIFs) and makes you feel even more personal, letting you type in your own Marathi language. The app has a ceaseless library of free & hilarious comic stories with headshots of your own face and your friends as well. And we all know, it is much more natural to build a connection when you put a face to a sticker and GIFs right. Besides, turning us into a prolific regional communicator.
I am fairly sure by now; you are all ears to learn more of the Keyboard’s features…
Having said that, now that I have personally enjoyed a lot from the Marathi Keyboard, I would like to introduce you to some super fresh features of it.
