DroidKungFu - Enter The Droid Malware Wars


According to researchers Yajin Zhou and Xuxian Jiang at North Carolina State University, there is a pretty robust Malware called DroidKungFu, and it apparently kicks the butt of most anti-virus out there. Clearly this new Martial-Artist-in-the-Middle is an ominous portent of more such dangerous Man-in-the-Phone attacks. This mobile malware seems to beset Android-based mobiles that run version 2.2 (the Froyo meets the DOJO!) or earlier by installing a backdoor and turning your phone into a bot:

"In Android versions 2.2 (Froyo) and earlier, DroidKungFu takes advantage of two vulnerabilities in the platform software to install a backdoor that gives hackers full control of your phone. Not only do they have access to all of your user data, but they can turn your phone into a bot – and basically make your smartphone do anything they want."


It seems that anti-virus utilities have to graduate to a black belt to defeat the next-generation of Imperial mobile malware. Let the Droid Wars begin.
