Security experts have found new Zeus malware which targets Android and BlackBerry mobile phones. Kaspersky Lab said it found four new Zeus-in-the-mobile (Zitmo) samples targeting BlackBerry users in Germany, Spain, and Italy, Denis Maslennikov, a researcher at Kaspersky Lab wrote on the company's Securelist blog that he variants were communicating with two command-and-control mobile phone numbers in Sweden.
Zitmo is a version of the Zeus malware that specifically targets mobile devices. There were three .cod files and one .jar file with a .cod file inside. The BlackBerry variants were the same as other Zitmo versions in the wild, other than grammatical corrections, Maslennikov said.
Maslennikov also found a new Zitmo variant for Android using the same command and control (C&C) numbers as the BlackBerry versions. BlackBerry has avoided being a target for malware despite its significant install base amongst enterprises and government agencies.
