Roughly 85 million Android users around the world have been infected with a new strain of malware, ZDNet reported. The software, which appears to have originated in China, generates pop-up ads and app downloads and may steal users' data.
Users in China, India, Indonesia and the Philippines account for more than half of the victims of the software, dubbed HummingBad, and the malware is estimated to deliver roughly $10,000 in revenue every day. It may not be a coincidence that users in some of those markets are more likely to visit third-party stores rather than Google Play to download their smartphone apps. Article
