New Android trojan gets fancy and actually records your phone calls

Steven Hodson

Anyone who didn't see this coming needs to get a reality check but it seems that the folks at the CA Security Advisor blog have gotten their hands on a really nasty Android trojan.

While there have already been trojans out in the wild that will record your calls time and duration, which is then saved to a local text file, this new one steps up the game by recording the actual audio of the phone call, and then saving it to the SD card.

For all that we rely on our smartphones they could turn out to be our biggest personal security risks, if our general computer history is any indication.
