Trend Micro noted that there were multiple complaints about the Android app in the comments section of the Google Play Store. One review said: “An ad within 30 seconds of opening the app. AND ya’ll got some nerve to ask me for a five star review, moments after opening the app. “And it crashed. Uninstalling this garbage.” Explaining how the adware in the affected apps work, Trend Micro said: “We tested each of the fake apps related to the adware family and discovered that though they come from different makers and have different APK cert public keys, they exhibit similar behaviours and share the same code.
