It has been reported that Bitcoin mining malware has been found in the Google Play store. If your battery is draining faster than usual, your phone maybe running a copy of the BadLepricon Bitcoin mining malware. "The malware comes in the form of a wallpaper app. Google promptly removed five of these applications after we alerted them to the issue. The apps had between 100-500 installs each at the time of removal."
