In recent times, the Android ecosystem has been
plagued with several occurrences of malware. This
has caused lots of panic among users. For
instance, right after the Stagefright drama, people
dropped their Android’s and switched to other
platforms. Manufacturers sat up and started
pushing security updates to fix the situation.



In a new twist, Lookout (owners of Lookout
Antivirus) have discovered a new strain of
malware. This one is crazy. It automatically roots
your phone, and pushes out endless ads to you.
Who knows, it might also be uploading some of
your data to servers elsewhere too.
In a blogpost, the company explained how
this malware works. It is infused into regular apps
like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Candy Crush etc,
and they’re uploaded to 3rd party Android apps
stores.
To add more salt to injury, the report says that
these virus cannot be uninstalled or removed. The
owner might have to end up buying another device
entirely. As always, the best way is to play safe.
Ensure to always download apps from Google Play
Store. This greatly reduces your chances of
contacting this virus.
