Beware Fake Pokemon GO App
Discovered by an IT security firm called Proofpoint the unofficial Pokemon GO app has a modified APK with a RAT. No rattata’s here, this APK contains a remote access tool which can give cybercriminals full access to the device it’s installed on. Having a RAT installed on your device means those responsible for the fake app will be able to modify and delete data, as well as track your location and take pictures and videos etc. Known as Droidjack or SandroRAT the malicious software was noticed less than 72 hours after Pokemon GO made it onto the store.
