SINGAPORE: There has been a spate of malware scams targeting users of Android devices, prompting the Singapore Police Force to issue public advisories in recent months. 

The modus operandi in some cases – tricking victims into clicking on social media posts on the sale of food items, before getting them to download a malicious application to make payment. 

In another scam variant, some people received an unsolicited SMS directing Android users to download a fake “anti-scam” app

“Once victims download and install the app containing malware, the malware will allow scammers to access the victims’ devices remotely and steal passwords stored in the devices,” the police said in an advisory. 

Is the Android system more susceptible to malware, what’s being done to address such risks and what can you do to protect your devices? CNA gets the answers from cyber and mobile security experts.
