Beware SandroRAT: Android malware disguised as a security App

A nasty Remote Access Tool (RAT) has been uncovered which goes by the name of SandroRAT.

Disguised in a supposedly legitimate email from various respected financial institutions, the malware starts out by (ironically) warning users malware has been detected on their phone.

Once infected, compromised devices can find their SMS messages, contacts, call logs and browser history is then stolen and reported back to the bad guys. It can even activate the devices microphone, store recordings on the SD card and upload them remotely later.
