I had to use the Galaxy Store to update the One UI launcher and was greeted with an app called "News Break" that I didn't have before.

It turns out if you accidentally tap the banner ads next to the search button in the Galaxy Store an app will COMPLETELY DOWNLOAD ITSELF without further permission!

How is this allowed on the store?
