Opera Mini Mobile Malware

Opera Mini Mobile Malware

There is a new variant of the OpFake mobile malware making the rounds, and this version comes bundled with a version of the legitimate Opera Mini mobile browser. The malware targets Android phones and steals money from victims by sending SMS messages without the user's knowledge to premium-rate numbers and also collects data about the device it infects.
Researchers at GFI Labs discovered the new variant of OpFake in recent days, and found that, unlike older versions of the malware that disguised itself as Opera Mini, this version actually downloads a copy of the mobile browser. The attackers have set up a fake Opera Mini Web site that encourages users to download the browser. Clicking on the link on the site begins the installation routine for the malware, downloading a package called "opera_mini_65.apk".
