You are right Mr. John Anderton, latest malware was found in Android mobile. This latest malware name is Zeus. The mobile version of Zeus is called Zitmo. 
 
This malware is a fake security app. This malware steals incoming text messages and capable to stealing personal information. This malware is capable to uninstalling themselves, stealing system information. Increasing the risk of malware like as Zeus is the lack of Premium users. The common area of this malware is iPhone and iPad.
 
 This malware send text includes sensitive data, as like as password reset links. This malware was first discovered in 2007 as a keystroke logger and form grabber. This malware is basically downloaded through visiting malicious Wed sites.

Researchers warn users from downloading applications coming from rogue or unknown sites because new Android malware are just running around via phishing emails. In August 2014, Carlos Castillo, a McAfee mobile malware researcher, described in details a new variant of RAT or Remote Access Trojan or what they also called AndroRAT. The latest variant was called SandroRAT. This latest variant appeared after the AndroRAT source code was on sale in 2013.

SandroRAT can execute a long list of malicious actions such as stealing of text messages or SMS, call logs, contact lists, browser history which might include banking credentials, and GPS location data stored in Android devices. SandroRAT can also record nearby sounds through the device’s microphone and then save the data in an adaptive multi-rate file on the microSD card which later will be sent to a remote server.

This variant is aiming for users in Poland. It was delivered to users through phishing emails disguised as a free Kaspersky mobile security application.
