DoNot Firestarter is a new threat to Android phones. This malware uses Google's own infrastructure to deliver malware, says a new Cisco report.

According to Cisco's Talos cybersecurity researchers, Firestarter uses Google's Firebase Cloud Messaging infrastructure to control the malware. 

This malware is hard to detect as Google's infrastructure allows it to hide amidst legitimate Internet traffic.

Analysis of DoNot's activities by cyber threat researchers at Cisco Talos says that the group tries to specifically target government officials in Pakistan, and NGOs working in Kashmir.
