Kaspersky Identifies Malware That Intercepts SMS Messages
Russian security vendor Kaspersky Lab reports that it has identified three APK files that have been heuristically detected and identified as HEUR:Trojan-Spy.AndroidOS.Zitmo.a. The applications are designed to hijack incoming SMS messages and upload them to a remote server with an encrypted URL stored within the Trojan. The company says that infected devices typically display a shield icon in the menu. After the infection is downloaded, there is a blue shield icon in the menu with the name, "Android Security Suite Premium."
