From their website ( ):

Dear CamScanner Android Users,

Our CamScanner Team has recently detected that the advertisement SDK provided by a third-party named AdHub, integrated in Android Version 5.11.7, has been reported for containing a malicious module that produces unauthorized advertising clicks.
Injection of any suspicious codes violates the CamScanner Security Policy! We will take immediate legal actions against Adhub! Fortunately, after rounds of security check, we have not found any evidence showing the module could cause any leak of document data.

We have removed all the ads SDKs not certified by Google Play and a new version would be released. Meanwhile, you may contact for a direct upgrade or tap HERE to download the new version.
We would appreciate your patience and understanding.

Best Regards,

Been here since the beginning.
