FBI Issues Warning To Android Users

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012 | Author:

Say what you want to about Apple and their controlling, even heavy-handed policies and decisions at times. But for sure, the FBI has never issued a warning to users of Apple’s devices like it did this past Friday to Android users.

The short of it is the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) says it was “made aware of various malware attacking Android operating systems for mobile devices. Some of the latest known versions of this type of malware are Loozfon and FinFisher.”

There’s over a dozen recommendations on how to keep you and your Smartphone running Android safe from negative consequences.

They might have added another: Just buy an iPhone.
