A new trojan has been discovered by CA Technologies, and it seems quite dangerous because it is able to record your calls and then send it to a specific location.

Malware just got better and more advanced, not long ago we alert about stealing call information like caller id, but now the malware is going even deeper having capabilities of recording the incoming or outgoing phone calls from the infected devices in an “amr” format.

This file is then saved on the sdcard in tje following directory /mnt/sdcard/shangzhou/callrecord/AMRfile.

Further more after the recording is done, this trojan is reported as capable of sending the recording to the “bad guys”.

The whole analysis of this malware is presented in detail by the CA Community visit the link below.
