This is not good. damned.gif

Malicious web ad infecting Android phones

Quote:This information comes from the Zscaler ThreatLabZ team, a San Jose, California-based security firm. Zscaler discovered the issue by scouring the Godlike Productions forums, a hotbed of UFO and conspiracy theory activity. For once, the tinfoil-hatted commenters had it right; someone really WAS out to get them, and that someone was a cybercriminal.

Gumby, you beat me to it. hi5.gif Some more:

Quote:Once installed, the update app takes no interest in either cleaning your system or plugging security gaps. Instead, it plasters your home screen with obnoxious advertisements. While it doesn’t seem to be anything more malicious than that at the moment, it does communicate to its masters using a fairly complex command-and-control server, and could distribute actual malware if its creator so desired.

Uninstalling the app is impossible, since "update" controls the device at an administrative level. Any attempt to get rid of it forces the phone into a lock screen, and at the time of writing, there's no way around it. Your only recourse is to perform a factory reset on the phone. Depending on how much data you have saved on your device, this could range from inconvenient to disastrous.

LOP and GLP go down more than any other sites on the net. For sites that are boring as dog shït it makes zero sense. I'm staying away from both places, they are connected.

It was their ad company I'm sure. No website owners in their right mind would give out spyware. I've heard of this type of thing happening.

This was published last month, the question is how was this not discussed by any other fora that I know of? Suspicious in and of itself, and I missed it in the news. His Napoleon Complex finally pissed off the wrong person, it took a while but it was bound to happen.
