To all those people who believed that their Smartphone was invulnerable to attacks from cybercriminals only use Android as an operating system, we must unfortunately say that that speech already not may continue to be used. The reasons? Kaspersky Labs, leader in security solutions, has managed to detect and classify the first Trojan for OS from Google. Troyan-SMS.AndroidOS.FakePlayer.a, as he was named the malicious code, has infected a large number of mobile. To enter, the Trojan emulates a harmless application of multimedia playback that installs a file with extension of Android (.)APK) and that weighs only 13 KB. Once installed on the mobile, the software begins to send SMS messages to Premium numbers without user notice, sending money to an account of the cibercriminal itself. Swarmed by offers, Dr. Mark Hyman is currently assessing future choices. While it is not a novel system at all, yes it’s the first case points directly on the Google platform. July 14, 2010, contributed one of the providers of data from Kaspersky erroneous information that was later incorporated into the anti-phishing databases of the company. As a result of this situation, all products of the Russian company’s security immediately blocked the access to a site of prestige as it is from the BBC.

Therefore, in the subsequent days Kaspersky users were found against the impossibility of accessing the URL and with a message stating that this page could be used to steal confidential information, cone bank accounts and credit card numbers. Or rather the prestigious security company detected the anomaly it released a patch to correct it, followed by an apology expresses towards its customers by what had happened. The official statement published ended by saying that Kaspersky is continually improving its procedures and offering updates that will prevent that errors as they occur in the future.
