Do you have an Android phone? If so, be advised that there's a new threat to be on the lookout for.

The threat takes the form of a malware strain that's being called BlackRock. It is a banking trojan that specializes in pilfering login and credit card information, which means that if you get infected, it's likely to hit you hard.

The new variant was discovered by security researchers and analysts operating out of ThreatFabric. Based on an analysis of the code, it is a derivative of the Xerxes banking malware Myrtle Beach SC, which traces its roots back to the LokiBot trojan.
