Tokyo: President Ram Nath Kovind arrived in Tokyo on October 21 to attend the enthronement ceremony of Emperor Naruhito, to be held on October 22, and also visited a Buddhist temple in Tokyo where he planted a Bodhi sapling, which he carried from India.

This is the first presidential visit to Japan from India after a gap of 19 years. The last presidential visit was in 1990 when the then president, R Venkatraman, attended the enthronement ceremonies of Emperor Emeritus Akihoto who stepped down last year.

Addressing the Indian community in Tokyo, the President said India offers immense opportunities for its diaspora to participate in India’s progress and prosperity.

“India seeks your support and commitment to create an India of our vision and dream, an India that promises to light millions of homes with progress and prosperity; an India that cares for one and for all,” he said. The President said that India is on a transformational path.

He also visited the Shinto Meiji Shrine in Tokyo. The shrine is dedicated to the Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shoken. Meanwhile, Tuesday’s enthronement ceremony of 59-year-old Emperor Naruhito’s ascension to the Chrysanthemum Throne marks the high point of succession rituals that began in May and will last through the spring.

More than 200 foreign dignitaries arrived for Japanese Emperor Naruhito enthronement ceremony.

Avast said its researchers installed the three apps and successfully purchased subscriptions to each app. However, when they tried to use the VPNs, the apps only provided subscription options again.

The apps are available on the Apple App Store as Beetle VPN, Buckler VPN, and Hat VPN Pro, Avast said.

These three apps have been downloaded over 420K, 271K, and 96K times, respectively, between April 2019 and May 2020, according to data from Sensor Tower, a mobile apps marketing intelligence and insights company.

“Fleeceware apps fall into a gray area, because they are not malicious per se, they simply charge users absurd amounts of money for weekly, monthly or yearly subscriptions for features that should be offered at much lower costs,” Nikolaos Chrysaidos, Head of Mobile Threats & Security at Avast, said in a statement.

The apps” all have high ratings, ranging from 4.6 to 4.8, and include enthusiastic reviews, all similarly written, which Avast considers may potentially be fake.
