Mutant Malware Threatens US Android Phones
Strangely, and maybe by necessity being a budget phone, both variants will have only 1GB of RAM. The performance boost of added RAM say maybe 2GB of it in an octa-core phone is substantial, and we were wondering if Archos could have squeezed the cost enough to at least put 2GB of RAM in the octa-core 50c Oxygen. Also, both variants will have the same 2,000maAh batteries. Again we wonder if a little more battery power could have been given to the octa-core variant, which is sure to need more juice turning 8 cores. On the upside though, both variants are sure to be able to handle HD multimedia with ease. Archos is touting even the 50b Oxygen to be able to handle full HD 1080p recording with its 8MP rear camera.

For example, Svpeng gained the ability to remain hidden on infected phones until users access certain mobile banking apps. Svpeng blocked those legitimate banking apps from opening, and instead launched a fake interface designed to look like the real app. Disguised as a banking app, Svpeng prompted users to enter their banking credentials, which were sent on to the criminals behind the malware. Svpeng also did something similar with the Google Play store. When a user with a Svpeng-infected phone tapped the Google Play app, Svpeng launched an overlay designed to look like an authentic part of the app, which asked users to "re-enter" credit-card numbers or other financial information. But that's wasn't all.
