A Latvian developer who made malware-embedded copies of Angry Birds, Assassin’s Creed, and Cut the Rope on Google Play was fined £50,000. The developer was also ordered to pay an amount of £28,000 in damages.
According to BBC, more than 1,000 users were affected by the malware infected-games. The malware rendered the fake games unplayable and sent SMS text messages without the knowledge of the users, which cost £5 per message.
The £50,000 fined is for the many intellectual property infringement violations against Rovio, Gameloft, and ZeptoLab. This is also the first time infringements on Google Play were taken to court and fined charges. The £28,000 will be paid to the Android users affected by the malware.
This only shows that Google Play is finally taking a stand against developers of malware.

If you own the highly popular Galaxy S2 and you’re into gaming, Samsung Apps has a treat for you. The Korean tech giant’s app offering is offering one of the best FPS, Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation, at no cost whatsoever.
Gameloft’s Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation is normally priced at £4.99. However, as part of a limited offer, Samsung Apps is offering the blockbuster game to the blockbuster smartphone’s owners absolutely free.
