Warning of 'complex' Android virus

(1/3) > >>

Hundreds of thousands of Android phones have been infected with malware that uses handsets to send spam and buy event tickets in bulk.

Mobile security firm Lookout said the virus, called NotCompatible, was the most sophisticated it had seen.

The cyberthieves behind it had recently rewritten its core code to make it harder to defeat, it said.

Mobile malware aimed at smartphones is steadily getting more complex, said security company Wandera.

Jeremy Linden, a security analyst at Lookout, said: "The group behind NotCompatible are operating on a different plane to the typical mobile malware maker."

Weren't there Androids in Dan Dare when he was captured by the Mekon?  Den will know! 

It's only been around since 2008, so probably a bit too recent for you, Grandad.  ;D

Dan Dare first appeared in 1950.  ;D  It depicted how life would be in 1990.  And it was accurate!


That's probably the longest url we've ever had posted!  ;D
