New Android Trojan records your phone calls

A new Trojan for the Android operating system can record your phone conversations.

An article on CNet.com says conversations recorded by the malware stored in the device's SD card as an ARM file. It is believed the information can be accessed over the web by the malware's creator.

Luckily, the file has to be installed by the device's user. Usually, this is accomplished by the Trojan mimicking a legitimate app installation.

The best way to prevent getting the Trojan is to be wary of what applications you install on your Android device.
