jayzz-640x340Highly popular rapper Jay-Z teamed up with Samsung Electronics to promote his new album "Magna Carta Holy Grail". The company has created an app that is working exclusively for the Galaxy smartphones users. This apps allows the owners of a Galaxy to download  Jay-Z's new album free of charge before the date when the album is launched, July 8. This opportunity has made those not owning a Galaxy phone to want the album for free, too. Consequently, the hackers did what they do best and found a way to get the album.Researcher from McAfee Irfan Asrar wrote on their blog:
"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.yes we scanDon'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!
