‘Flappy Birds’ Malware—How To Avoid Virus Infested Version?

This season’s fave pick among gamers, Flappy Bird has given us reason of gloom. Despite having flown away from the app stores, Flappy Bird has left behind tremendous share of malware. Sophos, a security firm says that unofficial Android sites are breeding ground for offering malware-laced Flappy Bird versions.

None of these are authentic or even official. Once you actually download either of these, your devices are hit with software that is malicious.

Dating back to 2013, the game seems to have found popularity only posthumously. Its popularity soared to heights that saw a top rank on iTunes and Play Store.

With the game now off from the market, spammers and malware creators are trying to dig in their share of money with duplicate versions.
