A Trojan for Android mobile devices. It serves as one of the components of Android.Xiny.60 which installs it into the system catalog under the following path:
Once launched, Android.Xiny.61 injects the igpld.so executable Linux library (Android.Xiny.62) into the system processes of Google Play (com.android.vending) and Google Play Services (com.google.android.gms and co.google.android.gms.persistent) applications. The injection procedure is carried out using the ptrace system call whose capabilities are mainly exploited by debuggers. Once the targeted process is “killed”, the Trojan connects to it and can read and modify the state of its memory and registers. Then, Android.Xiny.61 modifies the register values in such a way that the infected process downloads the malicious library.

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;
