Pink Camera apps secretly signed users up for premium subscription services.

A powerful money-siphoning malware known as MobOk has been found hiding in seemingly legitimate photo editing apps available on the Google Play store.

They included genuine (though limited) photo-editing functionality, but also came with a highly dangerous backdoor that could offer the attacker almost complete control over an infected device.
