    A cyber-security firm has discovered what they believe to be the first Android malware family written in the Kotlin programming language.

    Researchers said the malware comes with many features, but crooks used only a few. According to a report published this week, the malware operators used it to make infected phones click on ads and secretly subscribed the user's phone to premium SMS numbers.

    Most notably, the malware could also bypass CAPTCHA solutions employed by some of these premium SMS services.

    Additionally, the malware was also capable of remote command execution, information theft, SMS sending, and URL forwarding.
