Malicious adware infects 20,000 apps for Androids, almost impossible to eradicate

Security researchers have found a new type of Android adware, which can trojanize itself into some of the most popular apps, such as WhatsApp and Facebook. More than 20,000 apps are said to be at risk overall and once embedded, the adware is almost impossible to remove.
The adware advertises itself as legitimate apps that are extremely popular with Android users. These apps can be downloaded from third-party app stores. Many of these apps are fully functional, but they also hide a nasty secret as the adware embeds itself into the operating system.
By creating adverts, it makes money for the adware creators, however, the malware is almost impossible to remove, the tech security firm Lookout Security has discovered. If downloaded, the only way to get rid of the adware is to buy a new device, as even resetting its factory settings will not help.

Russian media executive Mikhail Lesin dies at 57 in DC hotel

Mikhail Lesin, a former aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin who helped found the English-language news service Russia Today, has been found dead in an upscale Washington hotel room.
The Russian Embassy in Washington on Friday confirmed the death of Lesin, whose body was discovered Thursday. Russia Today reported on its website that Lesin, 57, died of a heart attack.
Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Officer Sean Hickman said that officers were called to the Dupont Circle Hotel about 11:30 a.m. Thursday and found a man dead. Russian Embassy spokesman Yury Melnik confirmed that the man was Lesin.
Russia Today, commonly known as RT, credited Lesin with "inspiring the creation" of the agency.
Lesin served as Russian press minister from 1999 to 2004 and presidential media adviser from 2004 to 2009, RT said. He then became a senior executive at Gazprom-Media, Russia's largest media holding company.
