But some of the developers took a bad step and misused Google’s platform for earning business. As of now, Google has deleted around 63 games from its Play Store after the discovery of a malicious bug, that displayed porn ads in the gaming apps, most of which are played by children.

According to the reports of Financial Times, among those affected app some were very popular in children for gaming like Five Nights Survival Craft and McQueen Car Racing Game, and most of them had over 1 million downloads. The malware dubbed Adult Swine displayed inappropriate and pornographic ads and suggests the user install fake security apps. The bug also leads user towards signing up for premium services that charge the user’s account for their services. According to a Google’s spokesperson,

“We’ve removed the apps from Play, disabled the developers’ accounts, and will continue to show strong warnings to anyone that has installed them. We appreciate Check Point’s work to help keep users safe.”

Google has now removed these apps from Play store. In addition, the tech giant has also disabled the accounts of those developers involved in these cases. Google has also issued strong warnings to users who installed the 63 apps.
