    In a rather worrying turn of events for the Windows 10 Mobile store, a fake “Tweetium Beta” version passed through certification, undetected by Microsoft. To make matters worse, it was created to scam and steal users’ passwords.
    The first notification about the fake version was posted by the official Tweetium twitter feed which warned its users not to download the app from the Windows 10 Mobile store.

    Thanks for the heads up Brink.

    It does beg the question though, why is it still on Windows 10 mobile store?


    UPDATE
    Just checked again and it's been removed.

    Better question is, Why was it there? The apps in the store are supposed to be screened so we wouldn't have to worry about installing them.
