Android trojan records phone calls

Security experts have discovered a new piece of malware for Google’s Android mobile operating system which secretly records phone conversations. If a user installs the application, which, in a crude attempt at camouflage, calls itself “Android System Message”, it saves recordings of all outgoing phone conversations in a subdirectory on the SD card.

Although the application does inform the user that it requires privileges which include audio recording, with so many applications requesting privileges which they clearly don’t need, most Android users are unlikely to notice this.
