The warning to Android users is via Twitter. Currently, there are reports that malware has infected 14 Android apps.

In 2019, the Joker hit Android apps. The Joker, which hacks apps from the Google Play Store, can access customers' mobile phones through these apps. The Joker virus has infected many popular apps in the Play Store. Some apps had more than 50,000 installations.

The Joker enters the Play Store by making minor changes to the code, bypassing security and testing. Each time the Joker attacks the Apps strongly. On his return, the Joker becomes more powerful.

This malware was first detected in 2017. Google has been trying hard to defeat the Joker every time since. The Joker also leaks money online without the customer's knowledge.

It can automatically click on online ads without the user's knowledge and access OTPs from SMS to secretly accept payments. If the bank statements are not checked properly, the user will not even know that the bank has subscribed to online services.

Experts warn that if you have these apps on your phones, delete them as soon as possible.
