Banking Trojans continue to surface on Google Play best cvv shop reddit, debit card dumps free

The malicious apps have all been removed from the official Android store but not before the apps were installed by almost 30,000 users
Malware authors keep testing the vigilance of Android users by sneaking disguised mobile banking Trojans into the Google Play store. We’ve recently analyzed a set of 29 such stealthy Trojans, found in the official Android store from August until early October 2018, masquerading as device boosters and cleaners, battery managers and even horoscope-themed apps.
Unlike the increasingly prevalent malicious apps relying purely on impersonating legitimate financial institutions and displaying bogus login screens, these apps belong to the category of sophisticated mobile banking malware with complex functionality and a heavy focus on stealth.
These remotely controlled Trojans are capable of dynamically targeting any apps found on the victim’s device with tailor-made phishing forms. Aside from this, they can intercept and redirect text messages to bypass SMS-based two-factor-authentication, intercept call logs, and download and install other apps on the compromised device. These malicious apps were uploaded under mostly different developer names and guises, but code similarities and a shared C&C server suggest the apps are the work of a single attacker or group.
The 29 malicious apps have all been removed from the official Android store in the meantime after ESET and fellow researchers notified Google of their malicious nature. Before being pulled from the store, however, the apps were installed by almost 30,000 users in total.
Once launched, the apps either display an error claiming they have been removed due to incompatibility with the victim’s device and then proceed to hide themselves from the victim’s view, or deliver the promised functionality – such as displaying horoscopes.
Regardless of which of the preceding activities one of these apps displays, the main malicious functionality is hidden in an encrypted payload located in each app’s assets. This payload is encoded using base64 and then encrypted with an RC4 cipher using a hardcoded key. The first stage of the malware’s activity is a dropper that initially checks for the presence of an emulator or a sandbox. If these checks fail, it then decrypts and drops a loader, and a payload that contains the actual banking malware. Some of the apps we analyzed contained more than one stage of such encrypted payloads.
The functionality of the final payload is to impersonate banking apps installed on the victim’s device, intercept and send SMS messages, and download and install additional applications of the operator’s choice. The most significant feature is that the malware can dynamically impersonate any app installed on a compromised device. This is achieved by obtaining the HTML code of the apps installed on the device and using that code to overlay legitimate apps with bogus forms once the legitimate apps are launched, giving the victim very little chance to notice something is amiss.
Fortunately, these particular banking Trojans (the full list can be found in the IoCs section) do not employ advanced tricks to ensure their persistence on affected devices. Therefore, if you suspect you have installed any of these apps, you can simply uninstall them under Settings > (General) > Application manager/Apps.
We also advise you to check your bank account for suspicious transactions and consider changing your internet banking password/PIN code.

Also can you please expand on HTML and overlaying? I’m and Android developer and was following up until then… What does HTML have to do with Android apps? Do banking apps host their security/features in a WebView?
To be able to impersonate hundreds of legitimate appswith their Android banking malware, attackers need to go for a dynamic approach(as opposed to having the app carry all the fake layouts in its assets, whichwould take up a lot of space and could trigger antivirus software). This meansthat the malicious app retrieves HTML code for the targeted legitimate apps anddisplays them to the affected user in WebView. This has nothing to do withwhether banking apps use WebView of not.
Most of the malware files targets stupid people who believe in horoscopes, magic stuff and quackery…Oh well… what to expect …
