Rovio have released an update to the original version of the massively popular game Angry Birds, 15 new levels have been released named Surf ‘n’ Turf and features pigs being bombarded on a beach by some ‘Angry Birds’.

For Rovio to release 15 new levels on their original product when they have just released Angry Birds Space just shows that the company really does have the end user at the core of everything they do! The update comes in at 16Mb so would be advisable to download over a wi-fi connection.

Angry Birds – Infected With Malware?

Have you ever used an unofficial App store for your android device? There are more sources for apps out there than just the Play Store, and some of these places aren’t as safe and respectable as we are led to believe.

Some version of Angry Birds – Space have been infected with a Trojan which allows cyber criminals to take full control of an infected device. The download is a fully functioning version of the hit game but also installs a malicious script which can be used to steal personal information such as banking details etc. The Trojan connects to a remote site and tries to install further malware on the device and can even be used in mass attacks on large corporations like Sony.

The download hasn’t been found on the Google Play Store but on other unofficial app stores, if the option to install apps from non market sources is ticked on your device within the security settings you can download and install from anywhere. Whilst the Play store isn’t a fortress against malware  and other malicious scripts it’s much more of a controlled environment than an unauthorised marketplace.

Graham Cluley writes on the ‘Naked Security‘ blog – “SophosLabs recently encountered malware-infected editions of the “Angry Birds Space” game which have been placed in unofficial Android app stores. Please note: The version of “Angry Birds Space” in the official Android market (recently renamed “Google Play”) is *not* affected.

The Trojan horse, which Sophos detects as Andr/KongFu-L, appears to be a fully-functional version of the popular smartphone game, but uses the GingerBreak exploit to gain root access to the device, and install malicious code.”
