maybe if people would change their mentality from "i need the latest games from Nintendo" to "I don't give a crap ass about mobile games from Nintendo" then these exploits would have 0 success !

Can you please make it clearer in the headline and in the first paragraph of the article that this is side-loaded malware and whether it is known to be downloadable from the Google Play store itself.

Thankfully Android dignifies its users with the ability to side-load apps not from the Play store. It also means Android users who choose to enable this feature must have some level of maturity to their app install habits. Articles like this are a good thing for educating that group when properly focused without needlessly alarming groups who rely solely on the safety net of the Play store.
