ESET has also found many malicious apps on the store that are closely related with the augmented game Pokémon Go. Such fake apps include “Install Pokémon go” and “Guide & Cheats for Pokémon Go.” These apps attract gamers with free in-app items such as Poke coins, Poke balls or Lucky Eggs. The reality is that it is a trick to mislead the “user into subscribing to expensive bogus services.”
