Hi Guys,

The following 17 apps have been confirmed to contain malware called ‘The Joker’. This malware hides itself in what looks like legitimate apps such as File converters and PDF scanners, but once installed on your device it allows hackers to do the following:

  • Signing you up for expensive subscription services
  • Clicking ads without you seeing them
  • Steal text messages, contact information and other phone data

Google have already removed them from the App store but this does not mean they will be removed from your device if you have previously installed them. Please check your device and if you have any of them installed please remove them immediately:

  • All Good PDF Scanner
  • Mint Leaf Message-Your Private Message
  • Unique Keyboard – Fancy Fonts & Free Emoticons
  • Tangram App Lock
  • Direct Messenger
  • Private SMS
  • One Sentence Translator – Multifunctional Translator
  • Style Photo Collage
  • Meticulous Scanner
  • Desire Translate
  • Talent Photo Editor – Blur focus
  • Care Message
  • Part Message
  • Paper Doc Scanner
  • Blue Scanner
  • Hummingbird PDF Converter – Photo to PDF
  • All Good PDF Scanner

Thanks and please let me know if you need any assistance.

All the best,
