MaliBot Android Malware Steals Financial and Private Data (1)

F5 Labs researchers have discovered a new Android malware family that can steal financial and personal data after gaining control of afflicted devices.

MaliBot is a Trojan that masquerades as a bitcoin mining app, but it can also masquerade as a Chrome browser or another app. The danger focuses on gathering financial information and stealing bitcoin as well as personally identifying information from infected devices (PII).

The malware employs a VNC server implementation to gain control of infected computers, as well as the ability to steal and circumvent multi-factor authentication. MaliBot’s capabilities have been discovered to include support for web injections and overlay assaults, the capacity to launch and uninstall apps, and the ability to steal a large amount of data, including cookies, MFA codes, and SMS messages, among other things.
