Security Alert: New Android Malware—OsSpy—Works as a Malicious Team

OsSpy is all about teamwork. This deceptive duo works together so that neither threat can be uninstalled easily. Once the first malicious application is installed, it makes sure that the other is immediately installed. If you’re infected and able to successfully uninstall one of the apps, the other one will constantly send you pop-up messages, telling you to install the other app. This annoying tactic will make your device harder to operate, as you’ll be constantly bombarded with pop-up messages. To make matters worse, OsSpy will send an SMS message to the malware author (at a certain number) to alert the scammer that you’ve uninstalled one of the apps.
