Warnings about a dangerous spy app on Android

Technical experts have warned of a spy program that can penetrate “Android” phones and access a number of important data.

According to the company “ESET” specialized in cybersecurity, “The spyware that was discovered can record calls and steal numbers and data, as well as read messages. This spy program is known as Android / SpyC23.A, and it is communicated to the target phones through fake applications.” .

According to the British newspaper “Mirror”, “These applications deceive users by disguising themselves in the form of well-known applications in order to succeed in penetrating devices.”

The researcher at the Slovak company, “Lucas Stefanko”, said that the experts had discovered a fake app store that was spreading the malicious program, and the expert stated that this program does things that cause concern when it succeeds in the penetration, because it can take pictures, record audio, delete files, and possibly capture the screen.

In order to avoid these risks, experts advise to limit the downloading of applications from the official Google store, which is the “Play Store”.

“Stefanco” added that “resorting to this official and reliable store is capable of protecting the user from becoming a victim of piracy,” and urged smart phone users to take caution and carefully check the source of the application and other details of use.
