Android malware spies on you even after phone is shut down | Mobile Security | CyberSecurity

Android malware spies on you even after phone is shut down | Mobile Security | CyberSecurity | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
A particularly devious new Android malware can make calls or take photos even if you shut the device down, according to security research firm AVG.


To achieve this, the malware hijacks the shutting down process — making it appear as though your Android device is shutting down. You see the animation, the screen goes black, but the phone is actually still on.

Improved Simplocker variant hits Android users hard | Mobile Security | CyberSecurity | Apps

Improved Simplocker variant hits Android users hard | Mobile Security | CyberSecurity | Apps | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
The initial version used a unique encryption key for all victims, which allowed Avast to create a free removal tool for the unfortunate victims to use.

But that ship has now sailed, as Simplocker developers have upped the ante and the latest variant of the malware now encrypts files with a different key on each device.

According to Nikolaos Chrysaidos, Avast Android malware and security analyst, this new variant has already infected more than 5,000 unique users. They have been tricked into installing the malware by malicious ads on shady sites, as it poses as a Flash Player app.

This week, we take a look at malware that pretends to be a helpful backup app and even managed to sneak into Google Play.


Of course, a marketplace as big and vibrant as Google Play changes quickly, so it's hard to pick out the trusted developers with so many up and comers. That's why we recommend installing security software on your Android device. Lookout has a strong offering, and I also recommend Editors' Choice winners Bitdefender Mobile Security and Antivirus and avast!
