Phishing App Discovered On Android Marketplace

It seems that it isn’t going to be easy to find a balance in the approval process for an App Store approval. Apple’s has been cited as being too troublesome, while it seems that Google’s Android Marketplace might not be strict enough. First Tech Credit Union is warning users that the Droid09 application, which poses as a legitimate banking application, is designed to gain access to your financial information. So if you’ve got this app installed, you’ll certainly want it out of your phone, as soon as possible, in fact. A statement from First Tech Credit Union reads:

“Please note that this attack didn’t target First Tech accounts. Accessing your First Tech account from your phone’s web browser is completely secure.

If you did download the Droid09 app, please remove it from your phone and take it to your mobile provider to ensure it’s completely removed.

As a reminder, we don’t currently have an app for the Android phone. “
