Security experts warn us once again that some Android mobile apps hide very dangerous malware that could cause great concern to users. The mobile apps were already infected with a malicious code called BRATA. It has managed to hide from the previous reviews of developers and unsuspecting users of Android mobile devices, and it is hiding as anti-spam software.
The main task of the BRATA malware is to simulate clicks and intercept SMS messages. Joker works using as little software code as possible, which it hides with great success. The BRATA malware actually leaves behind minimal traces that are often impossible to identify and detect. The ultimate goal, of course, is to simulate a multi-level authentication banking gateway, which would allow unprepared people to hack a banking application.
Although Google has already deleted the malicious apps from the Google Play Store, they will continue to be downloaded to the devices of users who downloaded them. Therefore, everyone who recognizes any of the applications listed below immediately deletes them. If possible, we recommend resetting the phone, as this will definitely delete all traces of the very dangerous malicious code.
