If your device is an Android, infected apps list demands attention

Today must be Tech Day here at Indie Art South. I came across an article warranting my attention. You may want to remove at least one or more of 16 apps you may have on your Android device because those apps contain Joker malware.

Only you can remove the apps.

PC Magazine has a complete article on this topic, and gives you the rundown on how the infections work. The magazine said Goo “removed the 16 infected apps from the Play Store and disabled them on devices where they are installed.” The potential number is an eye-popping 120,000 devices.

Although the apps are disabled by Goo—repeating here for attention challenged readers—you have to remove them yourself. PC Magazine lists the apps for your convenience.
