Hi Girish_G,

 

Judy is an Android malware that could infect Android mobiles. Recently up to 36.5 million Android users were affected by Judy malware. 
 
It is spreading through the applications that have been available for download on the Google Play Store. Judy works by generating clicks on advertisements. This allows hackers to charge advertisers for the clicks, getting them plenty of money in return.
 
Thanks

There are numerous antivirus/antimalware/security suite programs for Android, most of them from the "major players in the PC market" who've done ports that are available for download from the Google Play store.

 

Some phones come already loaded with this sort of protection software.  If you are worried about Android malware then I would suggest you take a look at what's available to protect you on that platform and install the one you prefer just as you do on your PC.

I put AVG on mine when I got it two months ago. I didn't know if I'll need it or not as I'm new to Mobile phones. Yeah yeah I was a hold out.  :bubbles:
