latest Android Trojan records your phone calls

A new trojan is set lose on the android community.

While a previous Trojan found by CA logged the details of incoming and outgoing phone calls and the call duration, the malware identified this week records the actual phone conversations in AMR format and stores the recordings on the device’s SD card.

The malware also "drops a ‘configuration’ file that contains key information about the remote server and the parameters," CA security researcher Dinesh Venkatesan writes in a blog, perhaps suggesting that the recorded calls can be uploaded to a server maintained by an attacker.

as always, be mindful of how and what you install on your devices.
