Joker malware apps, 17,000 in three years still a problem

We’ve covered the joker malware I believe, and irecently read an article from the Hacker News about it. This malware steals everything from SMS (text messaging) to phone call data. It also has the invasive habit of subscribing people to premium services.

This is why we continually talk about checking your transaction history on a regular basis so that you can spot something you don’t recognize. The details on how this gets in to Android devices is very messy, and I’m not about to try and hash this out in my own blog post as there are many different things it does now.

If you want to read the entire details of this latest invasion in to what this group is up to, Joker Malware Apps Once Again Bypass Google’s Security to Spread via Play Store is the article. This is going to get really interesting. I am not looking forward to this. If you’re an Android user, better watch out and make sure yu’re protected as best as possible.
