The news aggregate app has drained the data of hundreds of people triggering extortionate overuse fees from their network provider.

'The relevant teams are now investigating and working towards a fix, and we'll be posting updates directly to this thread'.

In reality, all these apps do is trick the unwary into downloading adware and in some cases inject worms and leak your data to unknown sources.

Google told the newspaper that it disputed the researcher's methodologies, arguing that some of the sharing was an app reporting crash statistics and analytics.

Google News is chewing up huge amounts of data in one very annoying bug.

Earlier this month, Google pushed up a Play Store listing for its new Search Suggestions app for Pixel phones, which powers - as you'd likely guess from the name - both the search functionality inside the Settings app and the suggestions which appear at the top. For example, the user that had 28GB of data used by Google News, is going to be seeing a $45 overage from their wireless carrier. What happened? 37Gb mobile data used in just a one or two days?

BuzzFeed discovered the ad fraud network and revealed it to Google in mid-October.

As a result, the apps run by We Purchase Apps' shell companies raked in millions of dollars of advertising revenue based on fraudulent traffic generated by the TechSnab botnet. So when you see something that doesn't add up, you can swipe right and move on with your day.

Therefore, the consultation of Google News by the internet users, risk the push toward consumption out-of-plan, or to consume the whole of their package. It actually seems to be a pretty small amount of users, when you consider how many use Google News. You can check out the Google Product Forums thread to find out whether Google has fixed it yet.
