∗∗∗ Doctor Web: a Trojan on Google Play subscribes users to paid services ∗∗∗
---------------------------------------------
April 16, 2018 Doctor Web virus analysts have detected a Trojan Android.Click.245.origin on Google Play. When ordered by cybercriminals, it loads websites where users are tricked into subscribing to paid content services. In some cases the subscription is executed automatically when users click on a fake "download program" button. Cybercriminals distributed Android.Click.245.origin on behalf of developer Roman Zencov and disguised the Trojan as popular applications.

∗∗∗ XLoader Android Spyware and Banking Trojan Distributed via DNS Spoofing ∗∗∗
---------------------------------------------
We have been detecting a new wave of network attacks since early March, which, for now, are targeting Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. The attacks use Domain Name System (DNS) cache poisoning/DNS spoofing, possibly through infringement techniques such as brute-force or dictionary attacks, to distribute and install malicious Android apps. Trend Micro detects these as ANDROIDOS_XLOADER.HRX. These malware pose as legitimate Facebook or Chrome applications. They are distributed from [...]
