Attention, Android owners:
A division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation has issued a warning to smartphone users about mobile malware and device safety, specifically regarding the Android operating system. A report published late last week the Internet Crime Complaint Center revealed that it has been made aware of various malware attacks, such as Loozfon and FinFisher, that target Android smartphones. Each malware is different and can range from stealing a user’s address book to completely taking over the infected device. The agency notes that Loozfon and FinFisher are just two examples of active malware that are used by criminals and users should take precautions to protecting their devices.
I have a theory as to why top-of-the-line Android phones are so freaking huge. Because you need a big-ass battery to power a quad-core CPU to run all the idiot background tasks (like virus protection) iPhone users never worry once about.
