iRecorder made audio recordings through the smartphone’s microphone every 15 minutes
Digitization and the routine when dealing with our mobile has often made us install application numbers without knowing their origin. When we use any of these tools, we must accept the terms of service and many people do so without reviewing what permissions they are granting to external parties.
Unfortunately, this practice can be very dangerous for the security of our smartphone and our personal data may end up being shared with malicious agents. This is what has happened with an application that contained a Trojan to spy on us and had been in the Play Store.
the app is iRecorder and if you have it installed on your device, you should delete it right now. In fact, Google has already removed this app from its Play Store. Normally the applications of your mobile do not contain any trojan, but this one has managed to go unnoticed and iRecorder could use the microphone to spy on you.
This application has achieved more than 50,000 downloads on the Play Store and its purpose was to record the screen. iRecorder made audio recordings through the smartphone’s microphone every 15 minutes and then sent the records to the servers to remain saved, something completely illegal and that violates the privacy of the users.
