An analysis of the technologies used by cybercriminals allows us to draw conclusions about the virus industry’s possible vectors of development and more effectively confront future threats. You, too, can learn what actions various malicious programs take in infected systems and how to withstand them.
A family of malicious programs for Android distributed by cybercriminals via modified legitimate applications. These Trojans launch when a certain system event occurs (for example, when a phone call is made). Once run, the Trojans belonging to this category start gathering information about the infected device, including phone number, IMEI, model, SDK version, and a list of installed applications. All information is sent to a remote server. The malicious programs of the Android.DDLight family can download other applications to the infected device. However, only the user themselves can initiate installation of those applications.
According to statistics, every fifth program for Android contains a vulnerability (or, in other words, a "loophole") that lets cybercriminals successfully introduce Trojans onto mobile devices and manipulate them into doing whatever actions they need them to.
