Flappy Bird clones flood app stores, present malware risk
The app world loves a good bandwagon. Once a game hits it big, it’s just a matter of time before imitators arrive. And when the developer of the original game stops selling his product, the feeding frenzy really goes into overdrive.
That’s exactly what’s happened with Flappy Bird, the game that took the app world by storm overnight only to leave just as quickly. A flood of dodgy Flappy Bird-like apps has taken its place, however, exposing users to some potential security issues.
