Google Android Malware
Well, I suppose it had to happen? There is a new malware affecting devices running Android that surreptitiously sends texts to premium numbers......... a bit like the old diallers.
Source is here:
A malicious app that racks up charges on handsets running Google Android
has been discovered.
Security firm Kasperksy Labs identified the app, which is thought to be the first of its kind.
The malicious software is disguised as a media player. However, once the 13KB file has been downloaded onto a handset, it begins sending text messages to premium rate numbers without the owner's knowledge or consent, "resulting in money passing from a user's account to that of the cybercriminals".
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
