23 Feb Symantec Warns Against New User Cred-Harvesting FakeApp Variants
Antivirus company Symantec recently warned against new FakeApp variants that are able to log into Facebook accounts and harvest user credentials from Android users.
The app can present the user with an authentic-looking Facebook login user interface. Once the user logs in, the malware is able to harvest general top-level data including username, password, device IMEI, and even profile and activity data such as work information and check-in’s.
Symantec further revealed that there had already been a number of users in the Asia-Pacific region who have been affected.
