DroidDreamLight, New Malware In The Android Market.

Droiddream Droiddreamlight

Developers of DroidDream that wrecked havoc in the Android Market two months ago is back, with a new moniker, DrodDreamLight and a whole bunch of new Android Apps.The DroidDreamLight moniker was assigned by Lookout Mobile Security team and the software is a stripped down version of the good old DroidDream, thus the DDLight or DroidDreamLight. These apps, listed below, send details (including IMEI and IMSI info) about the  infected handset to a remote server upon receiving a call. The code is also able to download and cue new package installations, if user approves to do so
Similar to last time, a developer who noticed his app being repackaged and distributed on the market, notified the Lookout team and they went hunting with the same code they used in March to detect the Apps with malicious code and they found a quite a few.
Google has taken all the apps offline as they investigate. So you know the drill, if you have any of these apps on your phone or tablet, get rid of them. You can contact Lookout team at and we can assist you in removing them.
