Microsoft has confirmed that it is behind the Cell Phone Spying Spying (CPSS) malware.
According to a blog post from Microsoft CEO Brad Smith, the malware is a new trend, one that is very different from previous ones.
“We are not going to be able to identify every single customer who has been infected with this malware.
However, the threat we face today is unique.
We have seen an uptick in new and emerging threats, and we’ve been able to detect and block some of these.”
Smith says that the threat has also been seen in the U.S. and other countries.
The malware uses a “spoofing” technique to trick its victims into clicking on malicious links, including advertisements and “banners” that can steal passwords and credit card information.
The company says that users can opt-out of the “spyware” if they wish.
Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
