In addition, the OwnMe Android spyware, which appears to be still in development, has been found capable of compromising WhatsApp messages, capturing screenshots, pilfering browsing history and contact lists. OwnMe also maintains persistence in an infected device by starting up whenever the device finishes booting.
We advise users to secure their messaging applications like Telegram and WhatsApp by staying vigilant of the latest threats and configure their privacy settings to secure their messages and calls. To avoid falling prey to Android malware, we advise users to avoid downloading applications from untrusted sources as they could be malicious. We also advise users to refrain from clicking and opening links and attachments in unsolicited emails as they could be deceived into downloading malware.
