Warning: New Android Malware Jumps from Phone to PC

android malware alertLawyers, if you are using an Android device, this story should make you take notice. A new form of Android malware can travel from you phone to your PC, opening files on a computer, collecting contact info, snag photos, and more.

"Two Android apps, Superclean and "a twin brother," DroidCleaner, bill themselves as apps that can free up memory on phones, in turn helping them to run faster. They don't do that at all. Instead, once a user syncs his or her phone with a PC, say to update a music playlist, or for any reason, the malware is installed on the PC, and can infect workstations, Chebyshev says."

If you have either of these apps, they need to be removed manually.
