Android Users, Beware of Unofficial Angry Birds Space App

Rovio is urging all Angry Birds fans with Android phones to be careful when downloading Angry Birds Space: an unofficial app on some sites features malware that could infect your device.

According to security news from Sophos, the malware looks and acts like a real version of Angry Birds Space, but comes with a Trojan Horse that can infect your phone with malicious code. The code basically can make your Android device part of a botnet capable of wreaking all sorts of havoc.

The official — and safe — version of Angry Birds Space for Android can be found here.
