Ninety nine percent applications have entire control of mobile phone which means they remotely operate phone as a user does and 92 per cent can view network connections.

One out of 10 of top 100 applications can record audio and take pictures and videos and 9 out of 10 are able to read storage content which can modify or delete.

Vincent Steckler, CEO, Avast, said, “One group of hackers managed to return more than 50 times into the store with the same strategy in just three months—their apps posed as games, but did nothing but click on porn.”
