1. Anncio porn in children's app

Even in early 2018, a malware called AdultSwine infected around 60 apps aimed at children on the Play Store and started showing pornographic advertisements to the victims. The infected apps contained characters from famous franchises in the children's universe, such as Minecraft, Spongebob, Angry Birds, Star Wars and Lego. When installing one of the programs, the cell phone started showing advertisements that led the children to install other malicious applications on the device. After the discovery, Google removed all apps from its official store.

In July, an American company in the pornography sector made the deepfake service available to its consumers, allowing them to digitally insert their faces in place of the actors of the productions, so that they would become stars of adult entertainment. Using machine learning, the algorithms can learn a person's facial expressions and reproduce them on another face, creating the fake porn movie with ordinary people.

However, this technology can also be used without the individual's consent, which raises typical issues of image rights. Celebrities like Gal Gadot have already been inserted into pornographic videos without proper authorization by malicious people.

In October, Instagram was taken over by a new fashion: posting photos as if they had just fallen on the floor. Called the "Falling Stars Challenge", the challenge consisted of posing with your face on the floor, but with valuable items scattered around the scene, as if you had fallen out of your bags during the false fall. The goal was to display wealth on the social network in a good-natured way. The game started in Russia and spread around the world, with people posing in private jets, speedboats, helicopters and carrying luxury items.
