Hacktivists Embarrass for Animal Rights

A discontinued Android game app has been modified with malware, so that anyone who finds and downloads an early version of Dog Wars inadvertently enables their phone to send out messages intended to promote animal rights, without their knowing.

The discovery was first reported by security firm Symantec, which makes it clear that the modified app is not available on legitimate channels like the Android Market or Amazon´┐Żs Appstore for Android. Dog Wars was removed from those following a public outcry over it being a game based on dog fighting, and is now traded elsewhere.
