Google has pulled the popular CamScanner app from its Play Store after it was discovered that it was spreading malware.

Kaspersky discovered that the app – which was installed more than 100 million times – contained an advertising library with a malicious dropper component.

The component was detected as “Trojan-Dropper.AndroidOS.Necro.n” and was designed to download and launch a payload from malicious servers.

The app had 1.8 million reviews, most of which were positive. However, a recent influx of negative reviews pointed to problems with the app’s user experience which prompted Kaspersky to investigate the software.

Telegram Investors Claim Company Will Issue First Gram Tokens Within Two Months

Telegram conducted a much-publicized initial coin offering for Gram in 2018, raising a reported $1.7 billion from investors who were promised Grams …

Posted on Aug 28, 2019

Social messaging app company Telegram plans to launch its new Gram digital currency by the end of October, the New York Times reported on August 27. The firm has reportedly told investors that the first coins will be issued sometime in the next two months. That’s according to three investors who spoke with the Times anonymously, due to nondisclosure agreements.

The company is expected to begin testing its Gram network at the beginning of next month. It eventually hopes to provide Gram digital wallets to all of its several hundred million Telegram users worldwide.

Telegram conducted a much-publicized initial coin offering for Gram in 2018, raising a reported $1.7 billion from investors who were promised Grams in the future. As part of that promise, Telegram agreed to either deliver those Grams by October 31, 2019, or return the money to investors. According to the Times, the company has been “racing to get the coins out before that deadline.”

The news comes as Facebook faces increasing skepticism from regulators over its proposal for the Libra digital currency project. Telegram, which has been even less transparent about its own cryptocurrency project, is likely to face similar skepticism as it gets closer to launching Gram.

Android app with 100 million users pulled after it was found to contain malicious software

Researchers from cybersecurity firm Kaspersky say recent versions of the popular app ‘CamScanner’ had an advertising library containing a …

Tens of millions of Android users have been urged to delete an app found to contain malicious software (malware).

Researchers from cybersecurity firm Kaspersky say recent versions of the popular app ‘CamScanner’ had an advertising library containing a “malicious module”.

“It looks like app developers got rid of the malicious code with the latest update of CamScanner,” the firm says.

“Keep in mind, though, that versions of the app vary for different devices, and some of them may still contain malicious code.

“What we can learn from this story is that any app – even one from an official store, even one with a good reputation with millions of positive reviews and a big, loyal user base – can turn into malware overnight.”

It’s unclear how many devices could have been infected.

Telegram Cryptocurrency ‘Gram’ Available by October

… in a first of its kind, Telegram successfully raised a whopping $850 million during its initial coin offering (ICO) pre-sale, which was open to only high …
Reading Time: 2minutesbyOgwu Osaemezu EmmanuelonAugust 28, 2019&nbspAltcoins

Telegram has hinted that the first batches of its Gram cryptocurrency will be available to a select group of investors by October 2019 and the Pavel Durov-led firm also plans to make the Gram wallet available to the nearly 300 million users of Telegram shortly, reports The New York Times on August 27, 2019.

Telegram Forges Ahead with GRAM

Per sources close to the matter, in a bid to fulfill its promise to investors, Telegram is putting preparations in top gear to make its Gram tokens available to some investors within the next two months.

Just like Facebook’s Libra, Telegram’s Gram token is designed to function as a global currency, making it easier for people to move money across the globe in a secure and cost-efficient way, however, unlike Libra, Telegram has hinted that Gram will be entirely decentralized.

Telegram claims its distributed ledger, Telegram Open Network (TON) will be run by node operators scattered across the world, similar to the Bitcoin blockchain. In essence, even Telegram itself will have no control over Gram transactions.

Racing Against Time

As reported by BTCManager earlier in February 2018, in a first of its kind, Telegram successfully raised a whopping $850 million during its initial coin offering (ICO) pre-sale, which was open to only high net worth individuals and venture capitalist firms.

Reportedly, Telegram previously promised its high-profile backers which includes Benchmark and Lightspeed Capital, as well as Russian investors, that they’ll have access to the purchased Gram tokens by October 31, 2019, or get refunds.

In a bid to meet the scheduled release date of Gram to these investors, Telegram is reportedly looking to launch the testnet of Gram network in the coming weeks, to make certain there are no bugs that could scupper its plans.

If all goes as planned, some investors will be able to trade their Gram tokens on supported exchanges, however, those who participated in its pre-ICO may have to wait a little longer.

While Facebook’s Project Libra is yet to receive the “blessings” the of financial regulators both in the U.S. and overseas, it is still unclear how Telegram plans to scale these huge regulatory mountains awaiting its multi-billion-dollar crypto project.

In related news, on August 26, 2019, BTCManagerinformed that Telegram users will soon be able to trade bitcoin and altcoins on the platform via Button Wallet.
