90 Malicious Android Apps Found That Infected Millions of Users

 

More than 90 malicious apps on Google Play have infected 5.5 million Android devices.

Cloud security company Zscaler has just issued a warning about the discovery of more than 90 malicious applications on Google Play, which have been downloaded to more than 5.5 million Android users' devices.

These apps initially contained no malicious code, but once installed, they would silently download the Anatsa malware (also known as TeaBot) through fake updates. Anatsa is a dangerous type of banking malware that is capable of stealing users' banking account login credentials.

There have been more than 5 million downloads of malware-infected Android apps.

There have been more than 5 million downloads of malware-infected Android apps.

Anatsa's main targets are financial applications of organizations in the UK, but it has also hit victims in the US, Germany, Spain, Finland, South Korea and Singapore.

While the researchers did not share the identities of the infected Android apps on the Google Play store, Zscaler did notify Google of the malicious apps and they have been removed from Google Play. However, users should still be cautious when downloading apps, especially those with financial implications.

To protect themselves, users should carefully check information about the app developer, read other users' reviews, and only download apps from trusted sources. In addition, regularly updating the operating system and applications is also an important measure to prevent malware attacks.
