New mobile trojan masquerading as Tic-tac-toe game targets Android devices

2014/10/10

SC Magazine - (International) Kaspersky Lab researchers found that a Tic-tac-toe game available on Android devices houses the Gomal trojan which allows hackers to record audio from the microphone, steal incoming SMS messages, steal data from the device log, and obtain root privileges, among other things. Good for Enterprise researchers determined that the app was a proof-of-concept app presented at Black Hat 2013 and used only in Samsung Exynos memory access vulnerability, which has since been patched.
