The 42 Smartphones That Bring Android Banking Trojan

We all know very well that it is very strange to get a smartphone that brings a “gift” as a trojan. Yes, we all know very well that this sounds very weird, but, today in this article I will present a list of 42 smartphones that bring Android Banking trojan as a gift out of the box

It’s strange to get a smartphone that brings a “gift” as a trojan. This is not the first time that Android smartphones bring included malware, which will serve the most different purposes.

Recently, 42 smartphone models have been identified that include a bank trojan.

Every day there is information about computer vulnerabilities that are exploited by hackers. Recently, it was discovered that there is a set of Android smartphones that bring a banking trojan.

What is a bank trojan?
This is a seemingly harmless type of trojan only that can open communication ports on the devices where it is hosted. The banking trojan Android.Triada.231 was first identified in 2016 and manages to gain root on any Android device and then infect the Zygote process, which is the core of the Google Android operating system. This process is used to launch all applications on the system.

“Android.Triada.231 is one of the most dangerous trojans in the Android family.Triada. This type of trojan can infect one of the most important processes of Android, Zygote. This process, which works at the core of the Android core, is responsible for running all applications on the system. When the trojan inflicts this module, all running applications can also be infected. Once infected, apps become vulnerable and the target of malicious actions.

The “power” of this trojan is in the consent of the hackers to allow them to inject Android.Triada.231 into the library libandroid_runtime.so that is part of the system, and thus the malicious application can penetrate the firmware of the device during its manufacture. As a result, customers already buy infected devices.”

After hackers access the device, they can steal bank data. The problem with this trojan is that its removal forces a reinstallation of the operating system. Russian anti-virus company Dr.Web reports that these smartphones have been sold worldwide.
