Moscow-based security firm Kaspersky Labs reports that a new strain of Android malware uses the Tor privacy network to avoid detection while it snoops on your text messages. The Trojan virus connects to what's called a command-and-control server, through which the Trojan's creators can send commands to infected phones. Once on your phone, it can collect and export a phone's vital information, such as the telephone number, country, unique device ID, phone model, operating system, and the names of all installed apps.
