Android and ios vulnerable to italian law enforcement spyware
SwB and Lookout find Android and iOS malware that was originally created for governments, arousing suspicions that it could be targetted intelligence attack. Researchers from Security without Borders first found the malware and gave it the name “Exodus”. The installer package was bundled with Android Package (APK) files on well-known phishing sites. That wasn’t the worst of it, as Exodus was later found in a number of apps that were on the Google Play Store. Meanwhile, mobile security firm Lookout found that there were iOS versions of Exodus in the wild as well. Exodus was programmed by an Italian company called eSurv, according to both Security without Borders and Lookout. The Italian security company is known to the public for its video surveillance software and optical recognition systems. According to Security without Borders though, the Italian company has been developing Exodus since 2016 at least.
