Google refunds, provides extra credit to buyers of fake antivirus tool

Google is providing refunds to buyers of the fake Virus Shield app for Android. Discovered by Android Police, the paid $3.99 app was discovered to just switch between different sets of graphics, and failed to provide any protection. The app was removed from the Play Store shortly after the discovery, with more than 10,000 downloads recorded. Google has started to send e-mails to affected customers, promising a refund within 14 days and a $5 promotional credit for Google Play.
