Malware that specializes in attacking bank accounts returns to threaten Android users

 

The dangerous Medusa banking malware is back to threaten Android users.

Medusa is a dangerous banking malware that has been out of the radar of researchers for a year and has now suddenly resurfaced and is targeting Android users in many countries, including the US, France, Italy, Canada, Spain, UK, and Turkey.

According to security experts, Medusa is capable of making unauthorized transactions from infected phones, monitoring keystrokes, controlling the screen, and interfering with SMS messages. In particular, the new version of Medusa is more streamlined, requiring fewer access rights but still causing serious consequences.

Apps used to spread the malware include fake Chrome browsers, 5G connectivity apps, and 4K Sports video streaming apps. Users are advised to delete these apps immediately if they are found on their phones.

Although Medusa has not yet appeared on the Google Play Store, it can still infect Android phones through installing apps from untrusted sources (sideloading). Experts warn that more and more cybercriminals are getting involved in spreading this malware, making it harder to detect and stop.

To protect themselves, Android users should avoid installing apps from unknown sources, only download apps from the Google Play Store, and regularly update security patches. In addition, using reputable antivirus software is also an effective preventive measure.
