The BrazKing banking Trojan has reappeared on Android


Bleeping Computer announced that the BrazKing Trojan has returned to the “market”. It is a banking Trojan that now comes with new features – malware has already been analyzed by researchers at IBM Trusteer who found them outside of the Play Store on pages that are reached after clicking on links in malicious SMS messages.

Such sites warn against an allegedly old version of Android and offer an APK to update the software to the latest version – this is obviously a scam, and if the user agrees to install the malware appears on the phone and is used for now by scammers who operate in Brazilian territory. However, it is worth remembering that the Trojan can also be used in other markets. The luck with the misfortune is that the Trojan has to be downloaded from sources other than the Play Store, so this mainly applies to people installing APKs from external sites.
