NEWS!!!! --- Rootcager Trojan found on the official Android market

Another virus for Android

Rageagainstthecage is a file that can also be used to legitimately root a phone in order for the users to gain administrative rights, but in this case it's used to allow the Trojan to do things like taking screenshots, harvesting IMEI and IMSI numbers and send them to remote sites, and drop a DownloadProvidersManager Android Package that will further execute downloads in the background.

For the full list of the potentially affected apps, go here. In you think you may have installed one of them on your device, check the installed apps against it or check the “running services“ settings on your phone for the DownloadManageService started by an application.
