Android Smartphone Users Beware

Although active since 2021, there’s an Android trojan (click link) that keeps improving on what it can do. If you own an Android smartphone, you need to read this post. Its Name “SOVA Android Malware” is the trojan we’re talking about in this post. Oddly, SOVA means “Owl” in Czech. (Some websites claim it’s Russian for “owl” but my research […]

Android Users Should Do This
