Lookout Security reports on five more applications found on Google Play Store that can be classified as malware. The apps provide live wallpapers but subsequently serve as Bitcoin miners. Interestingly, the apps are monitoring device’s battery level and are operating only if it is over 50% and the display is off. The discovery is another proof that Google should improve its automatic app checking process to avoid potentially harmful apps being added to the store.
