Zwischenhändler sollen immer mehr Modelle aus dem Android-Lager vor dem Verkauf manipulieren, indem sie beliebte Apps mit Malware-Komponenten ausstatten und auf den Geräten installieren.

Android-Smartphones kommen immer häufiger mit vorinstallierter Malware daher. Angreifer können Geräte auf diesem Weg ausspionieren, berichtet G Data in seinem aktuellen Mobile Malware Report. Davon sind vor allem Smartphones aus China betroffen, darunter aber auch Geräte von hierzulande bekannteren Herstellern wie Huawei und Lenovo.

Nachweisen konnte G Data die vorinstallierte Malware auf dem Ice Fox Razor und dem N8000 und N9500 von Star. Im Report tauchen auszugsweise noch 20 weitere Geräte auf, bei denen die Indizien der Sicherheitsforscher auf eine Infizierung vor dem Verkauf hindeuten. Zehn Modelle stammen allein vom Hersteller Alps. Wie viele Geräte G Data insgesamt verdächtigt, ist nicht bekannt. Die Dunkelziffer soll den Forschern zufolge sehr hoch sein.

The initial version used a unique encryption key for all victims, which allowed Avast to create a free removal tool for the unfortunate victims to use.

But that ship has now sailed, as Simplocker developers have upped the ante and the latest variant of the malware now encrypts files with a different key on each device.

According to Nikolaos Chrysaidos, Avast Android malware and security analyst, this new variant has already infected more than 5,000 unique users. They have been tricked into installing the malware by malicious ads on shady sites, as it poses as a Flash Player app.

A new report from security firm Avast out this morning reveals the discovery of a new form of malware on the Google Play store, which begins to display advertisements disguised as warning messages to end users when they unlock their Android smartphone. What’s interesting about this malware – or adware, as it’s better known – is that some of the applications where it was discovered already have a large number of installs. For instance, a card game app called Durak has 5 to 10 million installs according to the data on Google Play.


Explains Avast researcher Filip Chytry, the malware was first brought to the company’s attention by way of a comment on the Avast forums, and, initially, he didn’t think much of it.

Über HTTP Request Hijacking sollen sich Hacker in iOS-Apps einschleichen und so den Datentraffic über eigene Server umleiten können. Nach erfolgreichem Angriff soll die Umleitung dann permanent aktiv sein.

 

===> Einzige Abhilfe schafft ein Update oder eine Neuinstallation der App. <===
