Google introduces us to “Nitflix,” a supposed Netflix app from a site called APKFab.

“All APK/XAPK files on are original and 100% safe with fast download,” reads the listing at APKFab, which also has a fancy “Trusted App” badge with a green checkmark.

Professor Mickens admits he doesn’t know if APKFab reviewed this app at all, and that the “com.tveemobilee.nitflix” file hosted there is likely not a legitimate app.

The point, I assume, is that decentralized notarization would lead to confusion about which websites have legitimate apps? We didn’t quite get to that.
