‘AdultSwine’ Android malware

The Register: ‘Mummy, what’s felching?’ Tot gets smut served by Android app – Google’s Play Store fails again

Actually, I didn’t know about felching, either, and I wish I hadn’t looked it up.

Based on Checkpoint’s blog article Malware Displaying Porn Ads Discovered in Game Apps on Google Play. Checkpoint says that this is a triple-threat attack: it may display ads that are often (very) pornographic, engineer users into installing fake security apps, and/or induce them to register with premium services.
