“RatMilad,” a new Android spyware meant to spy on users and collect data, has spread throughout the Middle Eastern countries.
Zimperium found RatMilad and said it might be used for cyber espionage, extortion, or eavesdropping. Zimperium discovered RatMilad.
NumRent, a phony random number generator, is generating social media accounts. RatMilad can sideload if given the necessary permissions during installation.
How can you avoid this?
While this spyware isn’t particularly in the U.S., It’s prudent to stick to the official Google Play Store, scan any APKs you download with a trusted antivirus tool. You should be vigilant about app permissions during installation.
