The popular Document Scanning app CamScanner, downloaded by more than 100 million users, was removed from the Play Store by Google. Google removed this app due to the spread of malware in smart devices. Kaspersky Lab had reported in a recent report that CamScanner contains malware. However, now the company has overcome this problem and it has returned to the Play Store.
CamScanner app is available for download with Version number 5.12.5. CamScanner has given this information by tweeting that the app has returned to the Play Store and now it is safe to use it. For those who do not know, let us know that this is a popular photo scanning app. With its help, users can create PDF.
The reason for removing this app was that the Kaspersky Lab security firm had found a malware module named 'Trojan-Dropper.AndroidOS.Necro.n'. This malware was also seen earlier in some apps, which came preloaded with some Chinese smartphones.
CamScanner soon discovered that this module is present in the Advertising SDK. The version number of this infected app was 5.11.7. This SDK was made available by a Third party named AdHub. It was creating unauthorized Ad clicks. However, let us tell you that this malware was only found in the Android version, while the ios version was not affected.
