Google Just Killed What Might Be The Biggest Android Ad Fraud Ever

Wait....didn't this just happen last week or am I imagining things? Honestly, with as often as this is happening, it is hard to keep track any more.

Google has thrown more than 40 apps out of its Play store after it emerged they were quietly forcing Android users to click on ads. As the apps been downloaded as many as 36 million times, security researchers said it appeared to be the biggest ever case of ad fraud perpetrated via Google Play and probably the most successful malware in terms of installs from the official store.
