This is how the Android Malware Font Installing Applications in Google Play looks
If this malicious font installing application is installed, it will download a spyware onto your Android mobile device.
Malware "Android.TechnoReaper" Installation Process
If you click on "Download", you will see the following link: “Download iKno from the Android Market”, but it is not actually linked to the Android Market. When clicked, the spyware ikno.apk file simply downloads directly from a malicious website.
This spyware will spy on your text messages (SMS), call logs, and location, which it will send back to the cybercriminals behind these malwares.
If you do not have antivirus software installed on your mobile device, it is recommended that one be installed.
I recommend using this antivirus software: Webroot Secure Anywhere Mobile.
Click here to download it at the Google Play store.
