    Exclamation 14 Million Android Phones Infected with CopyCat Malware

    News for users of Android!




    *****


    14 Million Android Phones Infected with CopyCat Malware
    By Bogdan Popa

    "Android users have once again been exposed to malware, as security company Check Point detected a new form of CopyCat that hit no less than 14 million devices across the world."
    "Primarily aimed at Asian users, but also infecting devices in other markets like the United States and Canada, CopyCat is specifically going after outdated Android devices, as it exploits vulnerabilities in older versions of the operating system."

    By Bogdan Popa

    "Security researchers at Trend Micro warn that Android smartphones are currently attacked by a new version of the SLocker ransomware that uses an interface similar to the one of WannaCry, the malware that infected thousands of systems in May."
    "The security company says that SLocker typically comes bundled into cheating tools for Android games, video players, and other popular programs, attempting to replace the wallpaper on the phone and to change its icon after compromising a device."

    Exclamation New Android Malware Lets Hackers Spy on Users, Steal Their Data

    Poor Android users. Hit yet again!

    New Android Malware Lets Hackers Spy on Users, Steal Their Data
    By Bogdan Popa

    "Once it compromises a device, SpyDealer attempts to gain root privileges with exploits in an app called Baidu Easy Root, which could basically provide attackers with full control. The Trojan supports remote controlling via UDP, TCP, and SMS, and can steal data from a wide variety of applications, including here WhatsApp, Facebook, Skype, Telegram, Firefox, and others."
    "But thatís not all. SpyDealer can also extract personal information from the compromised Android device, including SMS conversations, phone numbers, accounts, call history, and even location. Attackers with remote control over the device can also take photos with the camera, record phone calls, take screenshots, and even listen to whatís happening near the phone."

    Exclamation Kaspersky Antivirus Banned by the US Government

    Does anyone use Kaspersky Antivirus software?

    Kaspersky Antivirus Banned by the US Government
    By Bogdan Popa

    "The United States government has decided to ban software developed by Russian company Kaspersky Lab due to possible ties to Kremlin and collaboration with local intelligence services."
    "Concerns regarding Kaspersky’s collaboration with Russia aren’t new, but more recently, reports coming from US-based media, including Bloomberg News, revealed that the security company had stronger ties than initially believed with Russian intelligence agency FSB."

    By Bogdan Popa

    "Another day, another form of malware targeting Android. This time, security company McAfee warns that LeakerLocker is a new type of mobile ransomware that goes after devices running Android using nothing else than applications published in the Google Play Store."
    "This means itís not at all difficult to get your device infected, and statistics published in the Google Play Store reveal that thousands of users have already downloaded the compromised apps."
    "McAfee says it has discovered two different apps infected with LeakerLocker in the Google Play Store, namely Wallpapers Blur HD and Booster & Cleaner Pro, which we wonít link to for obvious reasons."

    @THOR Microsoft Security Essentials comes well recommended! Many like its performance and it is a keeper!

    For other perspectives, this is an excellent website to look at:
