(Download APK) Google Play Store app update V8.3.72 now available

Sure, some malicious crapshoots still manage to bypass Apple's tightly wrung app deliberation process once in a while, but the Play Store, by comparison, has had more terrible luck with apps of this nature, and when that happens, it raises several questions about Google's review process: What seems to be the problem?

Currently in scope are the Alibaba, Dropbox, Duolingo, Headspace, Line, Snapchat, Mail.Ru, and Tinder apps, but the list is likely to expand in time. However, Google has since announced another use for the platform.

Apple has gone to great lengths to incrementally shift investor focus away from the all-important iPhone business, which is technically more susceptible to volatility as a hardware-based business, toward its growing services business, which generates recurring revenue. Only popular apps will be included in the program's scope. Examples include vulnerabilities that would allow an attacker to gain full control of an Android device, manipulate a user interface to hijack a transaction or one that involves the opening of a webview that may lead to a phishing attack.

Google has started to roll out a new "try now" button next to apps on its Google Play store. There is also a new interface for the Games screen coming out, which highlights featured games with screenshots and trailers right in the category page. Ultimately, though, Google wants the experience of Instant Apps to feel indistinguishable from their regular counterparts.

Software scans cannot match a person's ability to discover "a truly creative hack", Vineet Buch, director of product management for Google Play Apps and Games, said in an interview.

Those many unfortunate Minecraft fans simply looking for some help or additional skins for the game instead wandered into the attackers' trap. Rather than wait for Google to push this download to your devices, which can take days, download and install it just like any other APK.

Google has challenged researchers to check for vulnerabilities in some of its apps on Android store. Do you think these programs will address Android's security issues?

"The portions of the app and any data they store are temporarily added to the device".
