    Newest Android Malware Allows Hackers to Control Your Phone


    There's a new malware program for Androids on the prowl, and it's a nasty one. The malware "app" is a trojan called "DroidKungFu" and it allows hackers a backdoor entrance to your handset. With access the hacker can get your personal data, but can also gain full remote control of your Android, to make your phone do anything they want. This is evil stuff to be sure! It was found by some North Carolina State University researchers buried in some apps on Chinese forums and third-party software sites. Here's a quick quote from the PhanDroid article with some good advice,
    Researchers at North Carolina State University discovered the malware, which has gone undetected by mobile anti-virus software thus far. The good news is you can do a lot to prevent yourself from picking up the bad apps. There is no word they have hit the official Android Market yet, so keep an eye on what you are downloading and only download apps from trusted sources and you’re already off to a good start.
    Stay vigilant!

    Sorry for my reply to such an old topic. How do we know whether my cellphone is controlled by others or not. If I am the only one who have the physical access to my cellphone, how do others know my texts and call logs?

    You would normally get something like that by installing a rogue app. You can get AVG or Lookout security from the Google Store to help protect yourself. It doesn't require that someone else use your phone to get infected. Sideloading apps from third parties could be dangerous.
