A new Android malware discovered by a cybersecurity firm has been discovered. According to the cybersecurity firms, this Android malware is the very first Android malware family developed using the Kotlin programming language. Kotlin is an open source programming language for modern multiplatform applications.
Way back in May 2017, Google stated that Kotlin is a first-class programming language for writing Android apps. And since its release, 17% of Android Studio projects had started using Kotlin – some of which are Twitter, Pinterest, and Netflix.
