McAfee mobile researchers have discovered malware hidden in eight Google Play apps that steals users' text messages and makes unauthorized purchases.
They found that the attacker-operated server controlling infected devices stored users' mobile carrier, phone number, SMS messages, IP address, country, network status, auto-renewing subscriptions, and more.
They also found the malware uses key management servers and has a self-update function.
Google removed the apps after the researchers reported them.
