Backing Trojan Xenomorph
Threat Fabric has tracked down the backing Trojan Xenomorph in Android phones. This is an Android malware, which carries out banking fraud. It steals users’ data. Xenomorph, once installed on your smartphone, tracks every activity on your phone and monitor. When you use the app or website for online transactions, it creates a fake interface of your transaction and then the users become a victim of bank fraud.
This is not the only app, there are many such apps which are working to defraud the users. In this way the Trojan malware released by an app called Teabot has come to the fore. Trojans are designed to steal personal information and messages of users.
Once installed, the Trojan requests permission to control the smartphone’s screen. Once this is done, it detects all the information such as login details, SMS and two-factor authentication code.
If you have these apps then remove them immediately and never install any such app which is not needed in future.
