Actor(s): Domestic Kitten


According to Check Point, they uncovered an operation dubbed "Domestic Kitten", which uses malicious Android applications to steal sensitive personal information from its victims: screenshots, messages, call logs, surrounding voice recordings, and more. This operation managed to remain under the radar for a long time, as the associated files were not attributed to a known malware family and were only detected by a handful of security vendors.
