It you have a google account please help with reporting this as harmful and impersonating.
*DO NOT INSTALL* (except if you are a malware researcher 😉)
Fake F-Droid app, please report:
Mission accomplished it seems! :-)
Como se reporta?
@fdroidorg How do you report this?
@fdroidorg you can request its removal, no? the support page for flagging apps says you can request apps for removal if infringes copyrighted or trademarked property
@fdroidorg Reported & boosted.
The fake app contains Google and FB ads and TrebleShot engine (to transmit/thieve data?).
Developer of the fake app possibly is related to TrebleShot from f-droid, because there are hard coded links inside to Github and Telegram groups:
@fdroidorg 'Deve lopez' lol
@isi Yes, that's the policy. But a) we don;t know if that app is actually a working appstore (it probably isn't) and b) it's not as if google has a good track record with scanning apps for malware/policy violations.
@fdroidorg yep, as soon as you remove free tusky from your repo
@snailerotica I am not too sure what your point is.
My point is that if they want to keep their community safe, the relashionship goes both ways.
This is not a competition to know what it worse both are bad.
@fdroidorg done, reported as a copyright, trademark & logo violation ; )
@fdroidorg There is an @exodus report here for this one : https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/fr/reports/107912/
I'm wondering if that's what happened to me? I had F-Droid on the tablet and the thing became unresponsive and quirky. Removing it seemed to have helped. Should I do a cold factory boot or leave as is?
Another reason I find myself unwilling to do much 'serious' computing on my tablet or phone. Android (Google) can't be trusted to maintain security of your device. It truly is a digital marketing slave collar operating system. Thank you, Google. <\sarcasm infinitum>
@fdroidorg seems like it was successfuly suspended, at least for now
@fdroidorg it's still there just now (in SW Europe at least)
@acesabe mmh. It's gone here in Germany. 🤔
Die angeforderte URL wurde auf diesem Server nicht gefunden.
confirmed...out of here too (France)
@fdroidorg appears to be gone for me (in the US)
I took the time and tested it:
1) downloaded APK. https://apkcombo.com/en-rs/apk-downloader/?q=com.source.managefile
2) then online APK sandbox analysis
3) At least one AV found it guilty, so check with VirusTotal
And in deed it is, check community section for more info.
Anyway it is off the PlayStore now. 🙌☺😁
@fdroidorg tried to, already gone
