Last week, we monitored three popular Android app stores – Google Play, Nduo and GFan – and found several adware on these app providers. When installed, adware typically display annoying advertisements.
The chart below shows the adware that were still available online from August 12-18. Based on our findings, GFan had the most number of unique apps detected as adware. This might be possibly due to its popularity in the Chinese market. Developers might have created these apps, which display multiple ads on an infected device, in an attempt to target more users and generate more profit.
