"McAfee Mobile Security has identified a new Android Trojan embedded in a pirated copy of an exclusive app from rapper Jay-Z. The only visible indication that a user is infected comes via a time-based trigger that [was] set to activate on July 4."The alleged app looks and works just like the real app, but it is secretly transferring information and installing and downloading other data. For instance, when the users downloaded it, the app changed their mobile phone wallpaper with a photo of Obama saying "Yes we scan". But Asrar suggests that it may be more damage to this fake app than just a wallpaper change. Don't forget to be careful which one of the apps you are downloading and installing, so you don't put your Galaxy device at risk!
