There are still many people who do not think their Android units ( or iPhone or iPad ) are actually computers.
MBAM, most likely Emsisoft, and others (Norton etc) are available for these units as well as Antivirus programs.
These should only ever be downloaded from the official app store, and that is where this infection crept in.
I understand it was in the form of an imitation (read Fake) Adobe style Flash Player update. Every young guy / girl likes to watch videos on their phone or tablet.
To do this they need a version of Flash Player, and often, like other scams, you can download from the wrong site!! Bingo !! Too late !! Infected.
Thanks to Condobloke for these details, and it is very genuine - ESET released research today (earlier), 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.
Believe it or not, there are many business people who add to, transfer, and subtract from their accounts, as part of their normal day.
Many will get a call from a partner (sometimes no call) and find that she / he has used money from one account and not another, and this is much more common than you think. I did some work for a man, and when he went to buy us lunch, the spare account had been "raided" by his wife, so on the spot he moved $200 from another account.
This was not a young 10 year old but an adult man who found himself stuck with no cash and a No Accept credit card.
In 5 minutes we had a beer and a feed thanks to him moving money - Think that could have left 2 business accounts open for hijackers.
