New Trojan overhears conversations users

Description:

A representative of CA Technologies, a Venkanesan Dinesh, in his blog announces the discovery of a new form of specialist malware that masquerades as a very useful system utility.
At first glance, fairly innocuous application Android System Messenger is really a bearer of a new Trojan, which, although it does not infringe on cash users, but with pleasure "listening" conversations users and then send the data to a remote server.
In particular, Mr. Venkanesan explains that telephone conversations are recorded in AMR file and stored on the memory card, Android-based device, and then, without the knowledge of the user, the data is sent to a remote server. Naturally, recording two girlfriends chatter hardly interested attackers, but the use of this trojan for industrial espionage could have very negative effects.
