Beware of These Applications That Rotate Advertisements on Facebook!

Applications in the Play Store abused the Android feature called Contact Provider and created a malware that can show ads in the background every time an application is opened. As a result, the user, who downloads a new application with this system, concludes that the ads he encounters are caused by the application itself. But the real source of the ads is another application that contains malware. According to McAfee, millions of Android users are at risk. Google has removed the designated apps from the Play Store . However, if any of the following applications are already installed on your phone, you will have to delete them yourself.

Here is the full list of apps:
