I have now installed both the Amazon app store and the Aptoide app store on my BPi, and after testing them a little I am now very suspicious about the latter.|
The Aptoide app store claims to offer updates for both Amazon and Google specific apps, such as both app stores as well as the crucially important 'Google Services', and they claim to have such updates with MUCH higher version numbers than those offered in the official releases at Amazon and Google pages. To me this smells very very VERY fishy...
That is exactly what malware spreaders would do... And what no one else would do...
I'm not saying that I have proof of any malware.
(I'm certainly not taking the risk of installing those 'updates' just to get proof.)
But I am saying that the fact that they offer updates beyond what the manufacturers state as existing, for both Amazon and Google, is suspicious in the extreme...
