Androids infected by a new malware!

 
 

Criminals have created a new type of malware that affects android devices, the malware uses compromised devices to attack routers.

The switcher trojan isn’t designed to attack the users directly, it will use the device as a tool to attack any wireless networks its connected to. Security researchers at Kaspersky Lab have reported that that the switcher uses brute force attacks. Once it has access to the router it will then change the DNS settings to redirect all traffic to a rogue DNS server.

This attack has managed to successfully attack 1,280 wireless networks; majority of the attacks have been in China.
