Google Android users warned vs fake antivirus spyware


“The application package uses an icon similar to the Kaspersky Lab icon, but the actual functionality is far less useful than the functionality of the legitimate product," virus researcher Vanja Svajcer said in a blog post.
The IP address 127.0.0.1 refers only to the host, or the local device. As such, the broadcast receiver will not be able to send data to the network to which the Android device is connected.

However, Svajcer warned this may be an early build, and a more dangerous version may be on the way.

“Clearly, this is just an early test build and we will have to be on watch for the next version which will be connected with a real malicious server," Svajcer said. — Source:  TJD, GMA
