Counterclank: Info-stealing Trojan or advertising tool?
A couple of days ago, Symantec has warned about Counterclank, an Android Trojan that has been unknowingly installed by users on over five million devices.
This huge number was possible because the Trojan has been grafted onto a number of applications available for download on the official Android Market.
Having analyzed and recognized Counterclank as a variant of the Tonclank Android Trojan, the researchers have come to the conclusion that it has been created by the same developer - a company that distributes a software development kit (Apperhand) to third parties to help them monetize their applications, primarily through search.

"The content uploaded by the attacker is not part of the home page and will not show when users browse these websites. In fact, accessing any page on these compromised WordPress sites, other than the uploaded page, will not infect the user’s machine. " explained the researchers.

Dang it! Why do people want complex mobile phones. My wife has poor vision so she just bought a Doro 610 (a story in itself!). Clear display and not too many whistles. £70 outright. Why buy a portable touch sensitive computer which merely feeds your internet addiction?
Harrumph!

Re: Got an iPhone or Android Look Out!

If I could afford one, yeah I'd have a smart phone. I can think of loads of potential for them.
That said, my phone is a cheap samsung that cost me £15 from tesco. Weirdly its outlasted every other phone I'd had.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
