In June, Doctor Web security researchers detected several malicious applications on Google Play store. One of them was designed to steal login credentials for VK user profiles; and the other—to load suspicious websites as advertising banners in order to get users’ mobile phone number and subscribe them to chargeable services.
An unwanted program module that is incorporated into the Android applications and is responsible for advertising on mobile devices.
Apart from Android.Valeriy.1.origin, another Trojan was found in Google Play—Android.PWS.Vk.3. This Trojan was represented as a media player for VK music. It prompted the user to enter their login and password for the VK user account and then covertly sent this private information to cybercriminals.
Doctor Web strongly advises users to install only official applications and protect their devices with anti-virus software.
