GhostCtrl Malware Targets Android Users

According to SC Media, quoting Trend Micro, GhostCtrl Malware Targets can "steal an "extensive" range of information including data related to call logs, SMS records, contacts, phone numbers, SIM serial numbers, usernames, locations, Android OS versions, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, cameras, browsers, searches, service processes, activity information, and more.

Before you download any Android Apps make sure you check the Permissions, If the list of permissions is far to broad or intrusive you should probably think twice before installing it. Checking the ratings is also a fine idea. If too many folks have had problems with the App perhaps you should avoid the potential harm to you device.
