Here is a great article by Lucas Ropek from Gizmodo about a new strain of highly sophisticated Android malware that gives a remote attacker FULL access to the target device including all data. This is some serious spying software here and is more than likely state-sponsored or state-made.
How to stay safe:
- Do not download and install applications from untrusted sources. Only installs apps from places like the Google Play Store.
- Always check the reviews and ratings before installing a new app.
- Check the company website, see if they are legitimate.
- You are giving an app access to the contents of your phone and all of your data. Make sure you trust it.
If you are not sure about anything just let me know and I will be able to help 🙂
Thanks and have a great day.
