New Android Malware Apps Use Motion Sensor to Evade Detection

The apps in question masquerade as a currency exchange app called Currency Converter and battery saver app called BatterySaverMobi, and are using motion-sensor inputs of infected Android devices to monitor them before installing a dangerous banking Trojan called Anubis.

The Old Countess: Did Catherine Fitzgerald Really Live to 150 Years Old?

People in the Middle Ages just didn’t live very long. Disease, war, bacteria, famine, and those pesky plagues did a number on mortality rates. Folks were lucky to make it to fifty years old.
