Zeus Trojan Hits Android Devices

Android 2

Trailrunner7 (1100399) writes "The Zeus banking Trojan has jumped the bridge to the large and growing ecosystem of mobile devices powered by Google's Android operating system, according to security researchers at Fortinet.

Researchers say they have obtained a Zeus variant, dubbed "Zitmo," that can run on Android phones and that has the ability to intercept one time pass codes sent to mobile phones as an added, "two factor" security measure."

Good reporting from Threatpost as usual, but Zitmo has been around for a bit, just now more variants appearing. Fortinet originaly reported Zitmo back in September 2010...
