Android Virus Clones Instagram, Angry Birds

Trend Micro, a company specializing in computer security and PC smartphones, has kindly sent an e-mail to announce that they had discovered two new viruses on Android .

Android is often the target chosen by the programmers of malware. The malware falls on Instagram today. Trend Micro has discovered a site strongly resembling the official one, but since its “clone” version is downloaded, it results to a malicious software. It’s the same for Angry Birds Space.

The user believes he was able to download the games successfully, but actually ends up with a virus detected under the name “ANDROIDOS_SMSBOXER.A” that will prompt the user to send an SMS to be able to use the application. The malware will then send messages to various issues and attempt to download other malicious files.

Other games are also involved including Fruit Ninja or Temple Run. The threat relates primarily to the time since the Android OS enables download applications other than on Google Play. However, vigilance is recommended for owners of jailbroken iDevice, although it is better to check sources before using Cydia.

Instagram is now available for Android users

After 18 months of waiting, users of mobile and tablet with Android will eventually come to the party Instagram.

On Tuesday, the popular photo-sharing network on the network for iPhone and iPad finally released an app for Android devices. The free application works with the Android version 2.2 or higher and is available for download on Google Play, the new Google’s online store for your digital media.

“We have been meticulous about translating Instagram experience to the Android platform,” said Instagram in a blog post.

“The application of Android offers a very familiar experience Instagram, compared with the implementation of IOS. Find all the filters and the community exactly the same as in our version of IOS.”

Instagram allows users to upgrade their mobile photos with filters, share with friends or other people and comment on photos of friends. Like Twitter, Instagram also allows people to follow other users.

Instagram has exploded in popularity since Apple was honored as the Application of the Year 2011. He has over 30 million users, compared to 15 million four months ago.
