This new Android malware comes disguised as a chat app

Updated: May 1

CallerSpy can monitor calls, messages, take screenshots and records its surroundings, say researchers - who warn that it could be the early stages of a targeted cyber-espionage campaign.

A new form of mobile malware designed to snoop on calls, texts and other communications is targeting Android users by duping them into downloading a fake chat application.

The trojan malware, dubbed CallerSpy, has been discovered and detailed by cybersecurity researchers at Trend Micro, who believe the malware attacks are part of a cyber espionage campaign.

Smartphones are a particularly useful target for attackers with the goal of cyber espionage because, not only do the devices contain vast amounts of information, they're also with the target the entire time.
