Tizi: another spyware that can attack your Android device

Today we talk about Tizi, one of the many spyware for Android.

This is a really dangerous spyware, online for 2 years, which mainly attacks devices equipped with older versions of Android.

Tizi exploits the vulnerabilities in the old versions of the Android system. So, in theory, you should be safe simply updating Android on your device, and make sure that your device is not infected.

However, this is not always possible, especially when device manufacturers do not promptly release security patches, or when they do not make new versions of Android available for older models.

Tizi has been discovered by the new security system of the Google Play Store, called Play Protect. It detected spyware in early September 2017. However, the malware was already available for two years, so we shouldn’t be so calm.

The main goal of Tizi is to obtain information through the most important social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and via the most popular messaging systems such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Skype, and so on…

Tizi is also able to perform the following operations:
– record the calls made on Whatsapp and Skype;
– record ambient sound through the microphone of the device;
– get screenshots of the device;
– intercept and send SMS;
– access contacts and calendars.

As already mentioned, the latest Android updates have corrected the vulnerabilities exploited by this spyware. However, since many Android smartphone and tablet makers make updates available only on the latest models, we recommend that you to take care and to equip your Android device with a software for security defense.
