This is a trojan that is built into third-party WhatsApp messenger mods and camouflaged as Google library classes. The names of the malicious classes are as follows: and While the host application is being used, the trojan sends requests to one of these C&C servers:

  • https[:]//googapis[.]org
  • https[:]//apisgoogle[.]org

In return, the trojan receives two URLs. One of them is intended for Russian-speaking users, and the other is for everyone else. Next, the trojan displays a dialog box with the content downloaded from the server. When the user clicks on the confirmation button, the corresponding link is loaded in the browser.
