The component of the Android.CoinMine.15 worm designed to mine the Monero (XMR) cryptocurrency on an infected Android device. The Trojan is implemented as the invoke.sh script, which contains functions for installation to the autorun of a malicious program.
The Trojan saves the original file adding the prefix “_real” to the file name for all the files except for install_recovery.sh. The script then installs and launches droidbot.apk, after which it clears the temporary folder. The script launched from the /system/bin/ folder tracks the status of the droidbot process and runs it in case it is not running. It also installs malicious apk again if the application was uninstalled.
