After revolution of android operating system millions of apps have been made and still counting. Reasonably android apps are now using to hijack your phone or stealing all personal information. Most time apps scam happened due to download from third party apps site or from some unsecure source. You have no idea which apps are good or which is waiting for you to ruin your life. As example we can tell about Angry Birds: star wars game scam. Most of the report said, by using this app all personal information hijacked and automatically it send some premium sms (which must cut your account balance but you might even don’t known it) even if you did not install Star War game. Like pc I think mobile security still not strong, there have a lot of weak point which hackers now started using to gather all personal information or for some others reasons. First way to protect your phone, you must download all of your apps from secure source (1st – Google Play Store, 2nd – Amazon). I think this is very good way to download apps first in pc, after checking by antivirus if you installed it in phone that must make you more secure than installed it directly phone. But the problem is still Google play store have not this type of option but for security it’s essential. I hope, within short time Google can realize it.
This is not new but by using YouTube malware exploring is new method. Everyday thousands of MB video uploading in YouTube and on of your uploaded video can bring something special for you. Like a user reported, after uploading a video in YouTube he got a mail where mentioned his video have some illegal content. This was not any ordinary email, it’s look like similar to YouTube email. So there was no doubt it can help him to reach a trouble world. I quote his email below:-
Subject: Your video may have illegal content
Attached file: Content_ID755658_Matches.zip
Your video may have content that is owned or licensed by Music Publishing Rights Collecting Society.No action is required on your part; however, if you are interested in learning how this affects your video, please open attached file with Content ID Matches section of your account for more information.

Guess what? As expected it’s happened like same, his pc attacked by Troj/Agent-XXC Trojan horse. After downloading attachment file it’s automatically explored to whole pc and pc started working slowly, all setting was changed and he was really in some big trouble. But fortunately nothing happened because this advance user has very good and up to date antivirus software which help him to protect this malware program. So you have to be careful about any email (even from Google) when they provide you an attachment file. Just now make sure your pc protection if you want to avoid some serious problem.
Like YouTube it is same problem, someone will send you email by calming DHL where will include postal recipient (if you have familiarity with DHL then you know without this recipient they do not give your parcel) and said to pick up your parcel from certain courier place. So while you are going to take your parcel malware will expand your whole pc and gather all of your information and you will back from DHL courier nothing but with empty hand. In the meant time you must fall in serious problem. This type of email you can easily avoid, essential step keep an up to date strong antivirus and 2nd step to download your DHL recipient from official website by using tracking code or shipment reference.

By using adobe pdf reader malware was expanding it’s fixed first time in 2011. There was a bug in Adobe Reader by using that XFA malware (which is considered as a very dangerous program) was entered in PC and collect all of your personal information. To avoid this XFA malware first you have to remove backdated adobe reader including all effected PDF file. Scan your whole pc by using up to date full version antivirus and then install a latest version adobe or if you like Foxit reader.
★ Use up to date and full version Antivirus Software especially online security version
★ Avoid all suspicious email, website and software
★ Think at least two time before opening an email attachment, you must scan it first
★ Remember, YouTube never send attachments file, so this type of email is spoof
★ For DHL use your own account to their site for receiving your recipient slip
★ Download regularly all of your operating system update, this is also important
★ Linux is safer than windows but that’s mean you can’t sit idle, be careful
