Security in app stores is one of the most relevant factors for their owners. Google is no exception and is that the Google Play Store It may be the most important app store in the world.
A month ago we learned that a really popular application, Camscanner, It had been removed from the store because it contained malware in its free version.
Today the application has returned to the store after solving the problem that was accused, on the occasion.
The company explains what happened
The company has had to perform some actions to solve the problem they had given that by using third-party APIs to advertise, their service could be used to inject malware into the mobiles that installed their application.
Through a release The company has assured that its application has returned to the Google app store and that all its users should update to the new version.
They emphasize the fact that although it was true that your app could have been used to access the content and data of users, there is no evidence that it was so, and that they have no record of any case. Despite this, of course, they have made the relevant changes to prevent it from happening.
Specifically, they have removed advertising SDKs, including those from Google and Facebook. Of course, that elimination will be temporary, surely until they can ensure that they can be safely implemented.
In addition, they invite us to use an antivirus to scan the APK if we want to be calm, what we can do with any antivirus for Android.
If you want to install the app again you can do it from the Google store.
