Law enforcement agencies across Europe have conducted a major crackdown and arrested users of DroidJack malware.
Officials raided several properties in the UK, Germany, France, Belgium and Switzerland.
The Android focused malware is a remote access Trojan that is sold online for £137 and is used by criminals to spy on smartphone data traffic, snoop on phone conversations, hijack a phone’s camera, and also take control of Android smartphones.
DroidJack has features similar to Android remote administration tool (RAT) and allows hackers to get IMEI number, Wi-Fi MAC address, cellphone carrier details, and last GPS location check in. The hackers can listen to live or record audio from the device’s microphone.
