Fake Mobile Banking App Discovered in Android Marketplace


A selection of applications written and uploaded by an Android Marketplace user/developer have been found to contain malicious code that attempts to compromise banking information stored on the device in order to commit bank/credit card fraud.

Droid09 launched this phishing attack from the Android Marketplace and it’s since been removed. It’s called phishing because scammers go fishing for information about you or your financial account that may be used for identity theft.

If you did download the Droid09 app, please remove it from your phone and we advise you to hard reset your device.
