Malware-Laden Fake Netflix App on the Loose?

The app, called Android.Fakeneflic, is apparently a Trojan horse that steals information from Android devices when downloaded. As Asrar explains in a blog post, the faux app presents users with identical permissions to those provided by the legitimate Netflix app.

When the user clicks the "sign-on" button, an incompatibility screen will appear that recommends a second version of the app be downloaded to fix the problem. Asrar suggests that this is where the program begins capturing user data and posting it to an offline server.
