Am auzit povestea asta cu Developementul liber de prea multe ori. “Apple nu te lasa sa faci asta sau aia”, “Apple refuza accesul aplicatiilor in AppStore”. Eu cred ca e mai bine asa decit sa descarci malware pe telefon, asa cum se intimpla in cazul Android.
Symantec trage semnalul de alarma in cazul aplicatiilor periculoase:
Found on unregulated third-party Android markets, malicious versions of legitimate apps like Steamy Window are difficult to distinguish except for their tendency to request permissions that are more excessive than usual, says Symantec. But once installed, these apps carry a new piece of Android malware dubbed Android.Pjapps.
Even running the app doesn’t raise a red flag to the user as the fakes closely look and act like the legitimate versions. But behind the scenes, these Trojans are actually trying to build a botnet that can take over the device by installing apps, adding bookmarks, sending out spam, and texting messages to premium-rate numbers.
