New Android Malware On Play Store Disables Play Protect To Evade Detection


New Android Malware On Play Store Disables Play Protect To Evade Detection

Make sure that Tamper Protection is turned on - In Windows 10 and 11 we have a feature called Tamper Protection that prevents unauthorized apps from changing your security settings. Many viruses and malware try to disable anti-malware software or other security settings when they're installed in order to evade detection. See Prevent changes to security settings with Tamper Protection for information on how to confirm that it's turned on.

In the aforementioned Smishing campaigns, we observed that the malware code has been evolving over time. The malware author(s) seems to be working diligently to improve the code by adding new target apps, obfuscating the code to evade detection, and trying to bypass App Ops restrictions.

Smishing (SMS phishing) offers a unique vector to infect mobile users. The latest Smishing campaigns spreading in Europe show that Smishing is still a popular means for threat actors to distribute their malware. In addition, threat actors have been using diversified host schemes and different C2 servers, and have been continuously refining their malicious code to keep infecting more users and evade detection.

Accessibility features are tools included with Android that ease access to mobile phone services for people with disabilities. For example, Android can read text aloud and prescribe voice into text, lowering the barrier of mobile phone usage for visually impaired users. Android Accessibility features can be grouped in four categories: screen readers, display configurations like magnification and Select to Speak, interaction controls like the Accessibility Menu, and audio & on-screen text transcription. These services require broad access to the system itself, the stored data (including e.g., contacts, photos, and passwords), the ability to read the screen, create overlays, and to perform actions on behalf of the user. These all happen to also be features that Android malware can abuse to steal data.

Apps scanning means that Google scans not only publicly available apk through their search engine, it also scan apps that are sideloaded by users on their device. This feature enables threat detection across devices. For instance if you are trying to download an apk file flagged as dangerous by Google Play Protect (either by their routine scanning or because other users have reported the file), it will display a warning message.

Spymax RAT is very easy to use. The main window displays the connected victims and allows the attacker to execute attacks with a right click. Of course, Spymax RAT comes with a Command and Control Server (C&C), which allows the attacker to send commands to the malware.

The defense strategies against malware differ according to the type of malware but most can be thwarted by installing antivirus software, firewalls, applying regular patches to reduce zero-day attacks, securing networks from intrusion, having regular backups and isolating infected systems. Malware is now being designed to evade antivirus software detection algorithms.[8]

Encryption-based ransomware, like the name suggests, is a type of ransomware that encrypts all files on an infected machine. These types of malware then display a pop-up informing the user that their files have been encrypted and that they must pay (usually in Bitcoin) to recover them. Some examples of encryption-based ransomware are CryptoLocker and WannaCry.[55]

The most common anti-detection mechanism is to encrypt the malware payload so that antivirus software does not recognize the signature.[33] More advanced malware is capable of changing its form into variants so they the signatures differ enough to make detection unlikely. Other common techniques used to evade detection include from common to uncommon:[62] (1) evasion of analysis and detection by fingerprinting the environment when executed;[63] (2) confusing automated tools' detection methods. This allows malware to avoid detection by technologies such as signature-based antivirus software by changing the server used by the malware;[62] (3) timing-based evasion. This is when malware runs at certain times or following certain actions taken by the user, so it executes during certain vulnerable periods, such as during the boot process, while remaining dormant the rest of the time; (4) obfuscating internal data so that automated tools do not detect the malware;[64] (v) information hiding techniques, namely stegomalware;[65] and (5) fileless malware which runs within memory instead of using files and utilizes existing system tools to carry out malicious acts.[66] This reduces the amount of forensic artifacts available to analyze. Recently these types of attacks have become more frequent with a 432% increase in 2017 and makeup 35% of the attacks in 2018. Such attacks are not easy to perform but are becoming more prevalent with the help of exploit-kits.[67][68]

Google Play Protect is Google Antivirus software that was developed to protect android devices. This shield is included by default on all the latest android phones who have the Google Play Store. The Play Protect blocks the install of any malicious app on android phones making the phones quite secure. Google Play Protect scans the device for malware and if any malware is detected it will warn you as shown in the image below: 153554b96e
