A new vulnerability in Android can steal bank detailes

Those apps were not in the Google Play store, but there are other vectors that could be used to get malicious apps on target devices, as well. By either combining the spoofed activity with an additional allowTaskReparenting activity or launching the malicious activity with an Intent. "Android 10)", wrote the researchers". What it seems to do is interrupting the way an app flows from the moment of the launch to the one of the welcoming screen appearing.

Once exploited, it allows malicious apps to camouflage as nearly any legitimate app, with Promon finding that "all of the 500 most popular apps (as ranked by app intelligence company 42 Matters) are vulnerable to StrandHogg". There is no way to block such an attack, and there is no method for detecting the flaw. That omission makes it exhausting for folks to know if they're or have been contaminated.

In a statement, Google said: "We appreciate the work of the investigators, and has suspended the application of potentially risky they are identified".

None of those 36 apps were in the Google Play Store, but there's a twist.

Promon reported the Strandhogg vulnerability to the Google security team this summer and disclosed details today when the tech giant failed to patch the issue even after a 90-day disclosure timeline.

StrandHogg represents the biggest threat to less-experienced users or those who have cognitive or other types of impairments that make it hard to pay close attention to subtle behaviors of apps.

"If app developers can just circumvent the system, then asking consumers for permission is relatively meaningless", said Serge Egelman, director of usable security and privacy research at UC Berkeley's International Computer Science Institute, which produced the research.

Permission popups that do not contain an app name. These codes can ask for permission or show phishing pages. For example, a calculator app asking for Global Positioning System permission.

Typos and mistakes in the user interface.

- Buttons and links in the user interface that do nothing when clicked on.

Again button doesn't work as anticipated. In addition, now, at least 36 examples of malware attacking the vulnerability as far back as 2017 have been identified-some being variants of the notorious Bankbot Trojan.

Monday's publish did not say what number of monetary establishments have been focused in whole.

"The specific malware sample which Promon analyzed did not reside on Google Play but was installed through several dropper apps/hostile downloaders distributed on Google Play", the researchers added. While Google has removed them, it's not uncommon for new malicious apps to make their way into the Google-operated service.
