Actually, AirPush is kinda a grey zone. It's PUP at best, definitely not malware (it "just" displays really annoying advertisements).

Probably the article was removed. The bug caused some problems in the internal systems of Play Store (Google Play Console).

Thanks God I'm on 4.4.4 which is not affected. This was one of my wishes of avast! Mobile Security protection. But, maybe due to technical reasons and Android limitations, I was never heard. And people still rely on the lockscreen password. A simple adb command just delete it :'(

When it comes to Malware, the APKs spread all around the web are really dangerous as they are full of virus. Similarly, the Hack & coin generator kind of tools are also very dangerous for mobile malware. Such as this post hxtp://noxappplayer.com/dream-league-soccer-2017-hack/ might provide the hack tool but it is very difficult to say whether they are providing the right tool or not.

So beware of such websites and don't get trapped by them just for getting something for free!
