Two years ago malware FakeToken was able to take over an Android’s phone and used phishing login screens to come for your personal info. CNet says this malware has taken another scary turn; this time FakeToken was found on 5,000 different smartphones sending out offensive texts en masse. After it steals your banking info, FakeToken takes your mobile account info and uses your number to send out some pretty offensive texts. It was found sending them to foreign numbers, which meant hefty costs to the phone user.
