Hackers and malicious users never rest, and they have found a way to get your personal data with the latest malware app disguised as Google+ app. Google++ is a fake Google+ app that comes with a malware known as ANDROIDOS_NICKISPY.C that logs your instant messages, GPS, location, calls, and other personal data.
In addition, this app can automatically answer and record your phone calls. To make things worse, all the gathered data is sent to a remote site to malicious users. In order to store data, this app loads several services that monitor and record most of your activity. But according to Trend Micro, the team that discovered the malware, this app isn’t dangerous as it seems. In order to be infected you need to download this app from a malicious website and install it on your own.
Google++ isn’t dangerous as it seems but it can be used to harvest your personal data, so in case you’ve installed this app, you can simply remove it just like any other app and your data should be safe once again.
