    Default New google play services MALWARE?

    Hello.
    I've been forced to update the Google play services. It would remind me at least 8 times a day since changes were being made to the app permissions. All the permissions now allow them to read my entire phone, but beyond that, I had to update it. I fully charge my phone each night. Then I noticed that from 6am to 6pm when I'm at work not touching my phone, 50% of the battery was gone and as soon as I hit a button, the battery instantly dropped to 20%. It never did this before the update. My brother told me people at work told him it was Malware. Is this true? Internet (NBC) said something about a Trojan. I've downloaded a battery saver and now I only lose 30% and I can hit buttons after 6PM without the phone going dead.
