Since it’s release in the beginning of July, ‘Pokemon Go’ has been at the top of the download lists on app stores. However, it’s release has been limited to the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Germany so far.
The lack of a global release by Nintendo is what is making users vulnerable. Since it isn’t available everywhere, users may be tempted to download it from unverified third-party app stores, exposing them to malicious apps.
Cyber criminals can repackage the ‘Pokemon Go’ app and turn it into malware.
