Softpedia - (International) Researchers with Blue Coat and Kaspersky Lab identified and analyzed a cyber-espionage campaign that appears similar to the RedOctober campaign dubbed Cloud Atlas or Inception Framework that has been targeting the Android, iOS, and BlackBerry devices of specific users in the government, finance, energy, military, and engineering sectors in several countries via spearphishing. The malware appears to primarily be designed to record phone conversations and can also track locations, monitor text messages, and read contact lists.
