Android virus prowling in Indian cyberspace

A potentially damaging virus which steals SMSes, email addresses, IMEI numbers, and installed applications among other personal details of an Android-enabled gadget user has been detected in Indian cyberspace. In an advisory to the country, Internet security sleuths explained a critical vulnerability in Android which allows stealing of information without the user’s knowledge and asked mobile phone and tablet users to exercise caution while operating. The malware is affecting all the versions of Android prior to version 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean). — PTI
