According to web security firm Sophos, 'The malicious download is a functional version of Angry Birds Space that gains access to your phone using a Trojan horse called Andr/KongFu-L. The cybercriminals behind the fake game can direct your phone to any website, once you've installed their Trojan,' reports Mashable.
