This is exactly why I always ask myself "Do I really need this app?" and if I do then I make sure to do my research on the app.
Well, that goes beyond this issue. If you're downloading from the Play Store, you're effectively safe from this particular vulnerability, because it's unlikely someone is going to be able to gain access to Google's servers to replace a legitimate APK with their modified one. It's when you side-load that it becomes seriously risky.
Kay, I have been doing everything through the app store so phew! Google does warns you when you decide to side-load.
How many people actually sideload outside of xda members?
Get mine from Google only
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
