EU Security Researchers Find Banking Trojans on Google Play
Security researchers from EU-based companies tweeted this week that a number of banking trojans and shady apps can still be found on Google Play.
Lukas Stefanko from ESET said that he found three astrology apps that had the functionality to steal and send SMS, steal callLogs and banking credentials, and download and install apps.
Meanwhile, Nikolaos Chrysaidos of Avast discovered five malicious apps that claimed to improve the performance of the user’s device, but were part of a banking malware campaign that was identified in the first week of August.
