Iranian hackers get tech support on forums
Iranian hackers are targeting Android systems using AndroRat and DroidJack remote-access Trojans, and are getting support from local-language forums.
According to research released this morning by Recorded Future, these particular RATs provide the ability to intercept SMS messages, contacts, call logs, browser history, and user credentials on visited websites. The malware can also intercept data from phone features like the microphone or camera.
These tools are most commonly used in very focused political attacks, said Recorded Future researcher Rodrigo Bijou.
