Most Dangerous Mobile App Store

English

Most dangerous mobile app store on the Internet is 9Game.com, which is a portal for downloading free Android games.

The mobile app store hosted the most malicious apps in 2019.

Most dangerous mobile app store.

9Game ranked number one on the list of app stores with the most "new" malicious app uploads, but also number one on the list of app stores with the highest concentration of malicious apps overall.

According to RiskIQ's 2019 Mobile App Threat Landscape report, 61,669 new malicious apps were uploaded on 9Game in 2019.

In this ranking, 9Game was followed at a considerable distance by the official Android app store -- the Google Play Store -- with 25,647 new malicious apps.

Completing the top 5 are Qihoo 360's Zhushou store, the Feral app store, and Huawei's Vmall app store.

But while the Play Store ranked second on the list of new malware uploads, its sheer size diluted the impact these malicious apps had on Android users.

The Play Store didn't rank at all in the top 5 app stores with the highest concentration of malicious apps, which included:

  1. 9Game
  2. The Feral app store
  3. The Vmall app store
  4. The Xiaomi app store
  5. Qihoo 360's Zhushou store

One notable absence on this list is Apple's App Store.

This is a direct result of Apple's in-depth and individual app review process, which is more suited to catching malicious apps than the automated process employed by most other app stores.
