Android malware known as HummingBad, that infected as many as 10 million devices in 2016, has resurfaced with several new features allowing it to perform ad fraud even more efficiently than its predecessor.

Researchers said the variant, known as HummingWhale, was being distributed via 20 camera, music, flashlight and adult apps on Google Play. Google removed the apps after the issue was privately disclosed by Check Point two weeks ago.
