How likely is it that you'll be affected by Google Play malware?

Is Google Play malware a realistic threat for the average user?
Or would you really have to be downloading and playing something obviously dodgy like Naked Korean Girls 5? :p

It's not a threat for the average user.

Even some of those dodgy apps you mentioned like "naked korean girls" don't actually contain any malware (Don't ask how i know ;) )

The only time you'll be at risk is if you download apps outside of the google play store or if an app on the google play store has malware on it (which is rare). As long as you stick to known apps or apps with high ratings then you'll be fine.
