Android banking trojan uses Flash to pinch your money

THE INSECURITY foghorn at security firm ESET has alerted people who bank online that they might be tricked by hackers using Flash shenanigans to trojan their way into finances.

Banking, malware and Flash are three security buzzwords, and a coming together of them is like a plague of locusts. Fortunately the attacks are rather limited in their geographies, according to ESET, and mostly bother customers of large banks in Australia, New Zealand and Turkey.

ESET has named the malware Android/Spy.Agent.SI, and claimed that it targets customers of around 20 banks. Victims, who will be struck by dumb acceptance of a Flash thing, could find themselves parted from their privacy and a wad of cash thanks to an opponent that has the ability to swagger past two-factor authentication.
