Malicious apps found in Android store: Alert Priority Moderate
If you use an Android phone or tablet, be careful when downloading and installing apps from Google Play.

Check the app’s reviews and download counts, and be cautious when installing apps with a low rating or those that are new to the store. Apps with good reviews and high download counts are generally less likely to be malicious than new apps with poor ratings.

The malicious apps are disguised as apps that deliver games, photo-effects or other desirable functions. However, in many cases, the apps were found to not work as advertised, in addition to installing malware onto smartphones and tablets.

 Criminals target small businesses with poor server security: Alert Priority Moderate

Criminals use ‘brute force’ attacks targeting weak passwords to guess small business server login passwords. ‘Brute force’ is where an automated tool is used to work through all possible passwords until it finds the correct one. Once logged on, criminals can manually encrypt business files, including databases in some examples. They then leave a ransom notice on the server or send the business owner an email demanding they pay a ransom for the ‘key’, or code, to unlock the files. Ransom amounts have been known to reach up to AUD$8,000.

Granitenet Inc. has a number of preventative Affordable solutions available for small businesses wanting to increse their security, and enquires are welcome.
