New malware masquerades as a ride-sharing app


An refurbish to a princely Faketoken.q Android malware has done it easier for a module to take your credit label information from ride-sharing apps. Faketoken attacks Russian ride-sharing apps by overlaying content boxes on a credit label information pages that can constraint your credit series and other critical information.

Kaspersky writes:

The trojan masquerades as a print app on your phone and is specifically camouflaged for limit sneakiness. It afterwards watches all your apps and uses a technique identical to Cloak Dagger that overlays interface equipment onto using apps. This functionality is useful in some cases but, as we see, is dangerous in others.

The trojan also goes after “apps for engagement flights and hotel rooms, and apps for profitable trade tickets — as good as apps for engagement taxis.”
