Steamy Window Virus

An android Trojan virus named Android.Pjapps has infiltrated third party android markets. It is targeting a fun app Heavenly Android has recently reviewed called 'Steamy Window'.


Chinese hackers have added the Android.Pjapps virus source code to Steamy Window, re-releasing the infected app onto sites unregulated by Google. Both legitimate and infected versions look identical once installed; one malicious thing to watch for on installation is excessive requests for permissions (always wise to check that permissions seem reasonable before installing any app).


The virus, once on your android, has the potential to install other applications, take over your web browser and add bookmarks or even surf to other infected websites. It also hijacks your text messages, continuously sending texts to premium rate numbers and draining your text message limit without issuing any prior warning. To add insult to injury, it can block and delete texts before they are even received by you. In short, Steamy Window, by Swiss Codemonkeys, is perfectly safe to download from Google Android Market.
