    Pokemon Go fans, stay privacy-aware

    You are probably running to catch your next Pokemon and we can?t blame you, this game is so much fun! But take notice, the wildly popular app has drawn the attention of hackers, too.

    Researchers found a malware-infected version of the Pokemon Go app for Android. The copy was modified to include a RAT. No, it?s not a new type of Pokemon, but a remote access Trojan that gives cyber-criminals full control over a victim?s mobile phone.

    Pokemon Go also sparked privacy-concerns as its iOS version requested full access to Google accounts, whenever Google was used as a sign-in option. The issue was quickly fixed. Pokemon Go on iOS no longer requests full access to Google accounts when a Google is used as a sign-in option.
