Malware writers take AppsGeyser for a ride #android #malware

So there is this cheesy-looking but nevertheless apparently semi-legit quick app building toolkit called AppsGeyser. By an outfit with a spammy name of BestToolbars, hailing from Virginia. Or Novosibirsk, depends on how you look at it.

Anyway, it’s gained some prominence with tens of thousands of apps out there bundling their library. The problem is, from what I see, every third app that is based on AppsGeyser is blacklisted. It’s gotten so bad that some AV companies seem to blacklist apps just for their use of that library. So the question is, is AppsGeyser in on all that malware action, or is it simply preferred by hackers?
