Google did not respond to a request for comment, but Sorin Mustaca, data security expert for AV vendor Avira, said Google has been working with AV companies since buying VirusTotal. The collaboration has focused on detecting suspicious apps on Google Play as quickly as possible.
Rather that reflecting a conflict between Google and AV vendors, Zscaler’s findings are more the result of the difference in which vendors detect adware, the fact there are thousands of apps to evaluate and the lack of a clear definition for privacy infringement, Mustaca said.
“I think that we will see in time a more clear guideline coming from Google in regards to ads,” he said.
