In 2015, a group of UC College of Information Technology and Computer Science students won the Grand Prize with their crime-reporting app "Crime Chase".

ESET's report comes at the same time as researchers at Malwarebytes have uncovered a new form of Android trojan malware masquerading as multiple apps in the Play Store. Note that it has been 20 hours since post, and the program still hasn't gone up, so this genuine.

"Unfortunately, multi-stage downloaders, with their improved obfuscation features, have a better chance of sneaking into official app stores than common Android malware does", said ESET. Development of an accessibility service requires extending this class and implementing its abstract methods. At present, there is no official confirmation or announcement regarding this from both Google and UCWeb. But that doesn't mean the app marketplace became free from threats. Even though the UC Browser app has been removed from the Play Store, the app is still available on Apple App Store.

"Google is most likely cracking down on Accessibility Services use due to security reasons". MediaNama has written to Google India and UC Web for comments.

Reports published today by Dr.Web, Malwarebytes, and McAfee reveal the presence of three new Android malware families hidden in games and apps uploaded on the Play Store. He tweeted that the UC Browser has been displaced from Google Play Store for 30 days because of opting invalid means of promoting the app and increasing the installations.

If that's yes to all, the malware will launch a counterfeit app that works just like a normal one.

With the accessibility API, apps can access lots of powerful commands that let them function a bit like a system-level app, and the legitimate, non-accessibility uses are almost endless.

Much to the surprise of many Android users, Alibaba-owned UC Browser disappeared from Google Play Store last night. However, Android Police's founder Artem Russakovskii posted about an email from UC Union (which is the company's network affiliate) which talks about UC Browser using 'Malicious Promotion' methods. What more could you ask for?
