The malware, dubbed NotCompatible, is being transmitted by websites when they’re accessed on smartphones running Google’s Android operating system. This is according to a blog post published Tuesday by researchers from Android antivirus provider Lookout. An iframe tag included in the sites provides a link to malicious software that’s automatically downloaded after the site is visited. The sites then provide notifications prompting end users to install the downloaded app. Installation is possible only on phones that have been configured to run apps acquired from sources other than the Google Play market.
Be careful, remember: “Droid Does”.
