[CNet]Phony Netflix Android app steals account data

post #1 of 18

It looks like a legitimate Netflix app, but it's not. There's an Android app circulating that looks very much like the real Netflix mobile app, but it's actually a Trojan that steals account information.

Hope everyone knows about this. Was Yesterdays news but didn't see it posted.

Thats why I don't do AnFAIL. Seemingly the iOS/App store has more stringent guidelines to avoid situations like these.

well you can see who made the app obviously if the name of the Company isn't the same as it should be that would be the first give away.

AnFAIL? Is that an attempt to flip the iFail? lol nice try

I agree, other OSes (iOS AND Win7) have a more thorough screening process. That is the tragedy of open source: people take advantage

Jeez, I would only HOPE that with how locked down iOS is, it is more secure than the totally open-sourced Android OS. If it were any other way I'd question the point of being so uptight about what is presented to the app store.

This malicious app wasn't even on the market. It was spread across different forums. What idiot downloads an app like "Netflix" that is free on the market, off a forum instead?

iOS/App store is also full of crapware, and is like a federal prison.

Exactly. All it takes is some common sense... Something that most iOS users don't seem to have

Lol @ iOS haters. It's so funny. I just don't know what else to say. Are people intimidated by apple? Are they jealous? What is it that you guys hate that you have no foot in to have any concern about?

I love my apple products and my pc stuff. They work in unison. Have had no problems at all. So I really see no reason why there should be hate or why people mention so much that iOS fails.

Obviously most android users don't have common sense either. lol.

Also by the number of downloads. The real Netflix app has over 5 million downloads.
