IC3: Beware of Mobile Malware like Loozfon and FinFisher

The United States government’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) press release provides warning to all mobile device users – that they should be aware of an alarming rise in malware targeting smartphones and tablets.

The IC3, along with the FBI and National White Collar Crime Center, alert users that the same security precautions that are recommended for traditional PCs and Macs should also be taken with their mobile devices.

Those concerned government agencies advice people to be aware of the recent propagation of the Loozfon and FinFisher malware.

Loozfon targets Android-based devices and is spread by email, seeks to steal user data and tricks users into installing it by pretending to include information about a lucrative work-at-home opportunity.

FinFisher targets multiple mobile platforms including Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Symbian, and Windows Mobile. It gives cyber criminals the ability to track and control a user’s mobile device remotely.
