We know that today there is malware related to all kinds of malicious activities. This includes banking malware, which is designed to rob banking credentials. This type of malware can be found in almost all platforms and operating systems, whether desktop or mobile.
It is common nowadays to hear news about new families of banking malware for Android devices and how they work. However, the same cannot be said for iOS devices. This may lead us to ask “Is there malware for iOS? And banking malware?
Nine years have passed since the first banking malware for Android mobile devices was discovered. It was 2010, and just a year and a half had passed since the launch of HTC Dream, the first smartphone with Android as its operating system.
At buguroo we have been detecting a massive fraud campaign targeting banks in Latin America and Europe since the end of last month, July 2019. Its objective is to steal money and credentials, and it is being executed using a RAT (Remote Access Trojan) type malware that we have baptized “Banker RTC Portal”.
In mid-May we detected a new Guildma campaign that affected banks in Spain, as well as different countries in Latin America and Portugal. Recently, we have continued to receive samples with small changes in the code.
Nowadays, more and more people use their mobile devices to carry out their everyday tasks, such as managing their bank accounts, which has resulted in an upward trend in the amount of malware detected for these types of platforms.
Since cryptocurrencies came on the scene in late 2008 and early 2009, new malware has gradually emerged that does its utmost to steal users’ wallets and cryptocurrencies. This malware, just like all the others, has steadily evolved, implementing new methods for achieving its goals, as we explain below.
On multiple occasions, through bugFraud, we have detected WebInject attacks that begin with a computer banking Trojan and which, on account of the protection methods offered by banking institutions, have had to adapt to attack the mobile device.
