Play Store: get rid of Android apps infected with the GriftHorse trojan as quickly as possible

The trojan Grifthorse wreaks havoc on Android. More than 10 million people in 70 countries have reportedly seen their accounts siphoned off by a malware quite diabolical in operation. GriftHorse sends notifications to certain Android users to let them know that they have won a free gift. Users who click on the link are taken to a web page where they are asked to enter their mobile number for verification. The less careful are trapped: the mobile number is then used to forcibly subscribe the victim to a bogus SMS service (which she does not know of course), the bill generally amounting to 36 euros / month!

Android malware

This scam, which is rampant on more than 200 apps from the Play Store, has reportedly earned its authors several hundred million dollars. If you do not want to be the victim, increase the level of caution (never click on an unknown link) and also, eliminate as quickly as possible the apps concerned, of which here is the complete list (thanks to our colleague of Clubic for having referenced the apps):
