Malware infects Android-run devices via PCs

target's Android-running smartphone or tablet with information-stealing malware.

The malware in question has been dubbed Droidpak. Symantec researchers have failed to share how it is delivered to potential victims in the first place, but they have ferreted out what it does.

First, it drops a malicious DLL and registers it as a system service. Then it contacts a remote server and downloads a configuration file from it. The information contained in it allows it to download a malicious APK (Android application package) file, as well as and Android Debug Bridge tool if necessary.
