Karbonn, Gionee and Samsung clones come pre-loaded with DeathRing Trojan

Security experts at mobile security solutions provider Lookout have found evidence of a new Chinese trojan which they have discovered pre-loaded onto low-end smartphones popular in third world countries like Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Nigeria, Taiwan, and China, in Asia and Africa. The Lookout researchers have name the trojan as “DeathRing” because the trojan is disguised as a ringtone App.

Lookout says that they have discovered the evidence of pre-loaded DeathRing trojan in Android smartphones and tablets after finding a similar pre-loaded malware called MouaBad earlier this year.
