Russian anti-virus company Doctor Web continues to monitor SMS spam in South Korea, as well as the Android malware being distributed with it. Compared with the first quarter of this year, the past three months saw a 31% increase in the number of short messages containing Trojan horse download links.
Doctor Web is issuing a warning to Android handheld owners about a new Trojan that can steal information about the credit cards they use when making transactions on Google Play.. The malware is spread in the guise of a Flash player and lures users into divulging their bank account details, which may enable criminals to steal money from the corresponding account.
Doctor Web has released the ninth version of Dr.Web Light for Mac OS X, designed to scan your Mac and cure infections, if present. The anti-virus supports Mac OS X 10.6.6 and higher.
