New Android Malware Records Your Phone Calls

Security researchers at CA Security have identified new malware that surreptitiously records conversations on Android phones, the company wrote Monday on its official blog.

The new threat to devices running Google’s Android mobile operating system is an advance on earlier Android Trojans examined by CA Security that unleash payloads which log incoming and outgoing call details and durations in a text file, according to researcher Dinesh Venkatesan.

“This Trojan is more advanced as it records the conversation itself in ‘amr’ format,” Venkatesan said. “Also it [conducts] many other malicious activities that we have seen in many of the earlier malware incidents targeted for [the] Android platform.”

I still have my raspberry colored Razr and I talk nice to it constantly.

I will NOT go quietly into that dark smart night.
