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:
@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
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:
@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.
@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 There is an @exodus report here for this one : https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/fr/reports/107912/
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. 🙌☺😁
