Fake Android 'The Interview' app steals bank account details

The Interview, a highly controversial movie that was pulled from major cinemas and distributed mostly online (and only in the U.S.), sounds like a dream come true for scammers.

It is no wonder, then, that a fake Android app has been making the rounds in South Korea, promising to download a copy of the movie but actually stealing users' bank account details instead.

Security researcher Graham Cluley shared the details about the app in a blog post Saturday. The fake app is really an Android trojan identified by McAfee as Android/Badaccents, which targets customers of several Korean banks and one international bank (Citibank).

According to Cluley, some 20,000 devices have been infected to date.
