More than 25 million Android devices infected with Agent Smith malware

Researchers from security firm Check Point claim that a new malware has infected more than 25 million Android devices. Dubbed ’Agent Smith’, the code makes its way on to a device through sketchy apps and then disguises itself as a Google-related application. So far, most of the infections have been detected in India and neighboring countries.
