Gemini threat Strikes on Android

Thursday, December 30, 2010

Android Mobile is now targetted by the hackers with a malicious application that harvests personal information and sends it to a remote server. This seams to be like a botnet and this is named as "Gemini". So guys Gemini the new intruder on the Andriod Mobiles...

Well Botnets are something like which run anounimoously and automatically once reached onto target zone. Geinimi as of now is targetted at chinese users and have found that it has been wrapped into legitimate free and paid games for Android users. Also they are appearing from the 3rdparty websites which offers andriod apps with a minimal security.Some of those programs have appeared to be downloaded thousands of times.

No one is still aware of whats the moto behind the creation of Geinimi. First lets us know what exactly Gemini does once it comes onto our mobile....Now once Gemini enters your mobile this malware communicates with a central command-and-control server. The server can issue commands to a phone remotely, such as to download or uninstall software. The user of the Android phone is prompted and must approve either action.

Hmmmm this sounds to me like using this app one can gain the control over the phone from the server and start installing other mallicious apps on to the mobile. But still some malwares are created for profit making and some for destroying the market... lets see how far this goes. But users please be aware of this app before downloading apps from 3rd party websites.

The app attaches itself to legitimate applications, such as:

Monkey Jump 2
Sex Positions
President vs. Aliens
City Defrense
Baseball Superstars 2010
