The malware in question is of the HiddenAds type and has been distributed through the millions of downloads of the applications that hide it, whose main purpose is to convey unwanted ads that entice the user to download another app that is nothing more than a adware built to steal personal information.

The adware is capable of acquiring not only personal information but also the user’s location and much more. It must be said that once the application is removed no traces of the malware remain, but it must be the user who understands where the unwanted ads come from.
