An Android Trojan that was detected on Google Play. The Trojan can be found in fake games, recipe collections, knitting manuals, and other programs. Android.Click.417 is a modification of the Android.Click.415 malware application.
When launched, Android.Click.417 connects to the ***-archive.ru command and control server. The sever then sends the link to the web page to load, specified by cybercriminals, or the none parameter. If the malicious program receives the parameter, it opens an HTML file in the assets resources directory. The Trojan opens the file via WebView and displays it on the screen. Most often this file contains several images, sometimes—images with some text.
If Android.Click.417 receives the link to the web page from the server, Android.Click.417 loads the web page via WebView and shows it to a user. That said, the contents of the demonstrated web pages can vary. For example, smartphone users can see fake login forms of online banking systems, social networks, or other online resources. This puts users who install programs containing Android.Click.417 at risk of phishing attacks.
Besides, the Trojan displays various ads.
