Joker 'virus' back on Google Play Store, is hiding in these 14 Android apps

What Is joker Virus? 

Belgian Police recently warned Android app users about the return of the 'Joker' virus. One of the most persistent viruses, Joker attacks Android devices and hides itself in various apps on the Google Play Store. The Joker virus is known to steal information from the victim’s device via SMS messages, contact list, and device info. Since it is a Trojan, it silently interacts with advertisement websites and also subscribes the victim to premium services without their knowledge. These subscription services start extracting money from the victim's bank account. 

"You risk a big surprise at the end of the month in your bank account or on your credit card," said the Belgian police, warning of the app as it subscribes the affected Android user to paid services, usually Premium ones without them actually getting to know.

After that, it continues to work without showing any visible malicious activity to the user.
