Android Trojans attacking websites, a dangerous banker, and other events: August 2017 mobile virus activity review
August 31, 2017
Doctor Web presents its August 2017 overview of malware for mobile devices. In the past month, Google Play was found to contain Trojans that mounted DDoS attacks on websites. Furthermore, malicious programs that covertly loaded web pages and automatically tapped on the advertising banners located on them were detected. Also in August the Dr.Web virus database was updated with the signature of a dangerous Android banker that stole confidential information. In addition, Google Play was infiltrated by a dropper Trojan designed to install other malicious applications.
