    I got an app update for an app I don't have. The app icon says "who are you?" But in the description it's called "you are you". I can't find this app in the App Store. Is this some sort of malicious software? I don't want to press update on this app in case it is. How can I remove it from my update tray?

    Hi RockinAl! Welcome to iPF!
    Your problem sounds weird. Did you find the app in App Store - Purchased? You could tap the icon there to show more informations. Some apps, like the one for iPF have a different name in the App Store.
    Another thought: while searching for a solution, I was directed to news about Facebook. Do you use it? Perhaps something like that is the reason for your problem.

    I found the problem. It was an app I had, but the developer changed its name and logo!
