February 24, 2020

Doctor Web presents its January 2021 mobile malware activity overview. Last month, the number of threats detected on Android devices decreased by 11.32% compared to December. Adware trojans, as well as malicious downloaders and trojans capable of executing arbitrary code remained most common threats.

Throughout January, Doctor Web’s specialists uncovered new trojans and unwanted software spread on Google Play. Multifunctional trojans subscribing users to premium services, trojans designed to load scam websites, and apps with built-in adware modules were among them. Moreover, various banking trojans also attacked Android devices. Read more about these and other events in our January review.
