Google has removed an Android app from the Play Store after security researchers from Symantec noticed the application was secretly scanning and stealing personal photos and videos from users' devices.

The app is HTML Source Code Viewer, and it was developed by a developer named Sunuba Gaming. At the time Google removed it, the application had between 1,000 and 5,000 installs.

The app's moniker is self-explanatory, and it allowed users to view the source code of a Web page. Users only had to enter a URL, and the application retrieved that site's source code and printed it on the screen.
