New DroidKungFu Malware
Well there is something not being talked about a lot. NC STATE UNIVERSITY professors have discovered malware being distributed from 3rd party app sites (people getting paid apps for “free”). You can read the FULL ARTICLE here, but here is a synopsis:
These sites give paid apps for free. Often times they have permissions the original app did not ask for. Why?
Because it can use your phone as a bot, making it run scripts that you don’t even realize. It can read your contact data, your history, your chats, etc. It’s bad people.
What can you do?
Use Legal Markets!
Pay notice to app Permissions.
PAY for PAID apps – support the people making your phone better.
