The attackers reportedly want to move to the Playstore as they have found 11 vulnerable apps. Authorities have been warned, if you find adware on your phone on apps that don’t usually have ads, immediately uninstall.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold was just spotted in the wild in New Dehli. This is the first time we’ve seen it being tested by a random person and it means that Samsung has resumed public testing. Being found in India could also mean that it could launch for more markets faster.
