|The App found to be seen on Google Play|
A major malware threat managed to make it past Apple's tight security net. The rogue app Find and Call made it into Apple's App Store as well as Google play, though the latter known to be less restrictive when it comes to security. The app steals a user's entire address book and sends it to a remote server, after which the user's contacts are inundated with SMS spam which looks like it originated from that user. Although Android malware is fairly common, this is the first threat to hit the ios ecosystem.
