    Probably they are just copying the icon and made a fake app that looks like the one they are pretending to be

    Re: Android crypto-mining malware can cause device damage

    AVG is a massive POS. My company has struggled to use it for our clients for the past 5-6 years. It has about a 1% detection success rate and about a 99% false-positive detection success rate. And since AVG bought Avast!, even the Avast! product has seen itself go down hill. I used to trust Kaspersky in the late 90s early 2000s, and then they started doing bad stuff and working for the Russian goverment, so that trust has long gone out the window.

    And to put my conspiracy hat on for just a sec, Kaspersky "found" this malware? Where? In their internal virus lab?
