Android app development .apk showing as virus


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. 

 

Need some help as our team is a little stumped on this. 

 

 

We are working with an overseas developer, have been transfering apk files through Microsoft teams for about 3 months now , no issues. 

 

All if the sudden this week, the apk files from the Dev team are being marked as malicious in Teams and one drive shows they have a virus. 

 

The dev team has scanned the latest files and no virus is detected on their end 

 

I'm trying to figure out if this is an Android issue or a windows issue .

Do you have access to the source code? My experience with foreign outsourced developers has left me suspicious of them at the least.

Hello,

 

Perhaps an ad-injection library was introduced into the APK at some point in order to generation additional revenue?
