    Android Malware ‘Hong Tou Tou’ found by NetQin in China





    It looks as though another piece of malware was recently found on an Android device in China by mobile security company NetQin. The malware is called ‘Hong Tou Tou’, and will basically sneak its way in by accessing your private data and sending it out to the writers server for review. The malware finds it’s way in by attaching itself to apps installed on the device, such as found in the popular game called ‘RoboDefense’.
    NetQin says the best way to protect yourself against malware attacks such as this is to make sure you know the developer is trusted when downloading and installing, also …get this…using their NetQin Mobile Anti-virus. Big surprise there right.
    Be careful out there.

    Been there several years ago on my PC.

    Yes, that is excellent advice. I found a site that had ebooks like the Harry Potter and Narnia series for free from China. Didn't install them.
