The Android platform has lately experienced an emergence of some new and “improved “ banking Trojans such as “Alien” and “Roaming Mantis”  The new version of the “Alien” Trojan has been modified and will not be detected by the Android’s built-in Play Protect threat detector, meaning android users will need to rely on a good anti-virus solution to protect them.

Roaming Mantis was originally developed to target Japan, Korea and China, infecting smart phones through hacked wi-fi routers. The latest revival similarly uses compromised routers to infect its victims.  Upon infection it re-directs users to a malicious site, where the user is prompted to upgrade their browser. The process that follows is very similar the any legitimate browser upgrade, so users rarely notice anything suspicious and give the Trojan full access to all device gadgets, such as the camera, microphone and recording capability. 

The increase of Malware targeting mobile devices will undoubtedly continue with more attacks
using ever more sophisticated malware.  The mobile platform is gaining more popularity and wider usage as compared to laptops and desktops.  Mobile computing is convenient for busy people who want a device that will fulfill all of their communication, banking and entertainment needs whilst remaining small enough to fit into most pockets.

Such devices deserve utmost protection.  Install EMSISOFT for Android and rest assured your device is safe for only $ 11.50 (GST included). (Normal RRP $ 16.50)
