CamScanner Safely Back to Google Play Store

As we Now that CamScanner recently removed by Google from Play Store (Click here to Read) after security researchers found that it dispersed malware between June and July this year. But after that, its developer released a statement saying that “it fell victim to an advertisement SDK provided by AdHub that loaded the malicious module into its product”. It has since cut ties with the network and removed the malware.
The firm pinpoints the introduction of malware to CamScanner 5.11.7, though we found that versions ranging from 5.11.3 to 5.12.0 were also unsafe for a more detailed breakdown. Luckily, no user data seems to have leaked. The malware only focused on click fraud, generating unauthorized advertising income. The company has since taken legal action against the ad network that injected the malicious code into the app.

You can read CamScanner's full statement below:
Dear CamScanner Android Users
Our CamScanner Team has recently detected that the advertisement SDK provided by a third-party named AdHub, integrated in Android Version 5.11.7, has been reported for containing a malicious module that produces unauthorized advertising clicks.
Injection of any suspicious codes violates the CamScanner Security Policy! We will take immediate legal actions against Adhub! Fortunately, after rounds of security check, we have not found any evidence showing the module could cause any leak of document data.
We have removed all the ads SDKs not certified by Google Play and a new version would be released. Meanwhile, you may contact for a direct upgrade or tap HERE to download the new version.
We would appreciate your patience and understanding.
Best Regards,
After publishing above statement and request to Google they reinstate the application and finally CamScanner has returned to the Play Store. It's safe to assume that Google thoroughly tested the app for malware before allowing it back in, so it should be good to install.
