Beware! This fake app can record your private conversation and take intimate photos of you

Netflix app is a streaming service app that allows its users to watch a wide variety of award-winning TV shows, movies, documentaries and more on thousands of Internet-connected devices. Netflix is currently faced with a  bigger challenge which is letting its users differenciate between the original app and the fake Netflix app.
This fake Netflix app used by hackers can do a lot of unspeakable things such as recording Netflix fans’ private conversations and snap photos of them in the nude.

The Sun reports cybersecurity experts have issued a red alert after discovering knock-off Netflix software which contains a piece of malware called SpyNote.
The nasty software embedded in this fake Netflix app is called a Trojan and is designed to sneak onto devices, take them over and then perform a variety of scary tasks. Once a person’s phone is infected, hackers can secretly take photos of their victim, perhaps snapping naked creep shots or capturing images of them in an intimate moment.

 The malware also has the capabilities of making calls,  record audio from the microphone and trace the movements of the smartphone’s owner using the device’s GPS location technology.
