October 1, 2015
Doctor Web presents its September 2015 overview of malware for mobile devices. The past month proved to be rather hectic in terms of mobile security events. In particular, security researchers detected a dangerous Trojan in the App Store that succeeded to compromise a number of originally harmless applications. Moreover, once again cybercriminals employed Google Play to distribute their malicious creations. In the middle of September, Doctor Web analysts registered a new case of Android firmware being infected with a malicious application. Moreover, cybercriminals continued to distribute various banking and ransomware Trojans.
