Sorry but I do not have full details yet, as there will be details released soon.

But a new Malware variation has just been discovered in large Australian cities mainly.

 

The Malware attacks Android type Apps on phones / devices, and has not been covered by most Anti-Malware programs.

 

Current advice is not to do any major financial transactions with these devices.

 

It seems to invade the device, decrypt most passwords, and Bank Account passwords, bypass Anti-Malware programs, and is dangerous..

 

Moderators can do what they wish with this, but I am watching current News updates for information..

 

Regards.

Found an article HERE 

 

 

A digital protection company has discovered that nearly all of Australia and New Zealand’s big banks are being targeted by malware on Android phones that can steal customers online banking details.

ESET released research today, showing malware known as Android/Spy.Agent.SI is able to steal login details by locking down a phone when you try to enter a bank’s app. From there, it will display a fake login screen for the bank and won’t let users leave that until they type in the details.

 

The thieves can then use the stolen credentials to log into a victim’s account and transfer money out of it.

 

This latest attack is incredibly sophisticated. After downloading apps infected with the malware, users agree to give the device administrator rights. This gives the malware a self-defence mechanism that prevents it

 

from being uninstalled, as well as access to literally everything on a device, including the ability to hijack SMS messages.
