He’s back, Joker! No, not the one who appears in the Batman series, but the malware which has become a nightmare for Google.

Since the beginning of Google’s Play Store, Google has battled Hackers who develop and submit malicious apps to the play store. To ensure its users are protected from malicious apps, Google makes massive investments in security. For an app to get published on the Play Store, it must pass Google’s strict approval policy.

As part of Google’s secure app validation process, it uses multiple self-developed advanced malware detection tools to identify if an application is safe for…


Due to the evolution of cloud computing, it has become a necessity to access remote machines these days. Most of us access our cloud instances every day, whether for business or personal purposes.

According to Wikipedia,

Memory management is a form of resources management applied to computer memory. The essential requirement of memory management is to provide ways to dynamically allocate portions of memory to programs at their request, and free it for reuse when no longer needed. This is critical to any advanced computer system where more than a single process might be underway at any time.

There are two places where data gets stored.

  1. Stack: A stack is a area of computer’s memory which stores variables created by a…
