OMG! Android malware again…


News has come about the two malwares officially being labeled as softwares in Google play.Google always boast of its app screening technology and the two apps named as Droid cleaner and Supercleaner just made the Google quack. Well someone seems to be working real hard to sneak into Google play and has succeeded to some extent .Though Kaspersky (Google should thank them )had found out the malwares .

Working;-

The malware was using the audio recorder function ,once triggered .And would upload the file to send to the distributor

Actions performed by malware in the mobile :-The malware once installed would access sms ,enable the wi-fi,upload the entire SD card content.In short,the privacy was compromised .

End Say:-

Download apps only when you are assured about the source.
