Specialist in the field of cybersecurity Lucas Stefanko found in the Google Play app stealing data of the users of crypto-currency exchanges and banking applications. It is reported CryptoGlobe.
In his video blog expert talks about the app called Easy Rates Converter, which, at first glance, it looks like a simple currency Converter. However, it is a malicious software that masquerades as an Adobe Flash update and is aimed at the abduction of personal data of users.
After installation, the program “waits” until the user launches the banking application or crypto, for example Binance App. After starting the relevant application program opens a window similar to the shape of the entrance to the exchange. She then looks forward to the moment when the user logs on, and then sends the personal data to attackers.
In this case the user is difficult to understand that its product contains malicious software, because the Converter is working properly, and any signs of suspicious activity do not exist.
