MOSCOW, November 14, 19:44 /ITAR-TASS/. Almost all malware attacks on mobile phones and tablets are targeted at devices running the Android operating system, a spokesman for Russia’s multinational computer security company Kaspersky Lab said on Thursday, adding that during the third quarter of this year the company’s experts detected more than 978 million various forms of malware.
“Kaspersky Lab specialists have fixed new unusual methods, used by virus writers to target mobile platforms, such as the Android Trojan Svpeng, a virus that gains access to the victim’s bank account. Besides, various cases of cyber-espionage were registered in the third quarter,” the spokesman said.
Also, Kaspersky Lab experts have spotted for the first time a few cases of using outside botnets -- the mobile devices infected with other malicious programmes, which are used by other computer malefactors.
“Most of the Android malicious applications are aimed at stealing money and, secondarily, personal information. Malicious actors do their best to steal as much as possible and, it seems, virus writers will continue creating botnets, thus intensifying the spread of infections in the Android system,” the company’s anti-virus expert Viktor Chebyshev said.
