Android.Qicsomos open source Trojan in circulation

Security researchers have uncovered a new Android malware that claims to detect Carrier IQ software on an Android device. Android.Qicsomos is a modified version of an open source project which was used to detect Carrier IQ with additional code to dial a PRS SMS number. On start-up the rogue software displays information about the device and will show a message which indicates the Carrier IQ rootkit was not found. Users are then presented with a button to uninstall the Android app, but it’s at this point that the rogue app sends an unauthorized PRS SMS. Read this article for more information on PRS SMS rogue apps.
