Google removed 29 malicious apps

Is there a reason why the 29 apps weren't fully listed in the article? Engadget did not fully list them as well. In the comments, a DPR poster mistakenly uninstalled the wrong app and on realising his mistake reinstalled Open Camera, He mistook the picture, which shows clean apps for malicious apps.

In the source link, Trend Micro lists the 29 apps.

Never buy version 1.0 of anything.
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
