Related:If that is not scary enough, the spyware can enable the WiFi on an infected device, even after the user has disabled WiFi, and connect it to a network controlled by the hackers, which allow them to collect and analyse the victim’s traffic, which includes passwords, credit card details, and logins. The Android spyware Skygofree can operate even when the device is in standby mode by listing itself as a favourite app. So far the spyware’s activity has been limited within Italy, and the following is what Alexey Firsh, Kaspersky lab malware analyst has to say about it:
“Given the artefacts we discovered in the malware code and our analysis of the infrastructure, we have a high level of confidence that the developer behind the Skygofree implants is an Italian IT company that offers surveillance solutions, rather like Hacking Team.”This does not, however, mean that Android users outside Italy can feel safe. As protective measures, Kaspersky has suggested Android users to avoid installing apps from unknown or third-party sources and use reliable security solutions on their devices.
