Google Pulls 22 New Malicious Android Apps From Play Store

ICS was designed to take props and users from iOS

Ice Cream Sandwich

Google last year ended the Play Services support for Android Gingerbread 2.3 and the seven-years-old Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) is now the next in queue. As a outcome, they are deploring the support of ICS in the future releases of the Google Play services. E-Readers that are running this version of Android will find a multitude of Google services will cease to function properly.

Google is also encouraging all developers with new and existing apps to not include support for Ice Cream Sandwich.

Very few Android devices are still using API levels under 16; the largest amount (28%) are now using a version of Nougat, API level 24 or 25.

The decision to close down API Levels 14 and 15 to Google Play has other consequences too - it means that Google Play Services will remain forever encased in amber at version 14.7.99, meaning that any new functionality that depends on it will not work. Samsung Galaxy Nexus was the first device which came with Android Ice Cream Sandwich out-of-the-box.

"If you update your app in this way and publish it to the Play Store, users of devices with less than that level of support will not be able to see or download the update", the post said. The Android Ice Cream Sandwich marked an evolution of Google's design language.

The newest apps discovered to be malicious had a so-called "device-draining backdoor" that allowed them to download files from a server controlled by the attacker. It's unclear how many developers will take the company up on that idea due to the relatively small market share for Android 4.0 devices. The security company claimed that "This is a well-organized, persistent malware that has the potential to cause serious harm to end users, as well as the entire Android ecosystem" because "these apps generate fraudulent requests that cost ad networks significant revenue as a result of the fake clicks".
