I usually use CamScanner to scan my documents. After updating to the last version, ESET told me I have to remove it, because this app has Trojan and it can provide remote access to the infected device. That was strange for me, and I think it's not correct. Anyway, I'm not sure. Shall I really remove CamScanner?


Uninstall the app. Google Play Store has removed it, and the company behind the app itself has accepted that an ad module was acting as a trojan. The latter claims that their new version available from their website is free from that trojan though.

  • It seems that if you use version 5.12.5, that would be fine and there is no need to uninstall the app. Otherwise, you can update it to the latest version from here. – Patris Sep 3 at 12:39
