Vicigers, I'm sure you like it, try trying the games on your recommended website or social media. Avast, the International Anti-Virus Company discovered a malicious campaign in disguise on a number of apps and games on Android (Google Play Store).

At the end of June 2020, Avast researchers warned of a new group of ad-mingled Trojan Viruses (HiddenAds) that had been distributed and downloaded 15 million times worldwide.

Generally, the majority of people will find it difficult to recognize this type of HiddenAds because subconsciously, this Adware integrates with popular applications and games so it is not suspicious.

The HiddenAds adware causes smartphone gamers to display ads aggressively even after exiting the application or game. Even for certain types of applications or games, even if they have been uninstalled, the adware is still attached to the smartphone.

After Avast published these findings, a series of applications and games that were banned from Avast have been processed and are completely inaccessible for the safety of users.

The spread of this adware based on Avast research has a concentration in India and Southeast Asia, including Indonesia.
