Android malware targets woman drivers in Saudi Arabia

Fascinating article from the Graham Cluley website by Irfan Asrar about malware that was targeting Android smartphones of people in KSA who were involved in lifting the women's driving ban.  A link to the article is here.  

Irfan Asrar is a security researcher focusing on threats targeting embedded and mobile devices.
In the article he explores how hackers attempted to infect the Android devices of users protesting against a Saudi Arabian ban on women drivers.
I previously had posted the contents of the blog article here, but the website owner asked me to provide only the link, which is above. I hope all readers in Saudi Arabia will still be able to get to it.
