New Android Malware Detected

Researchers at AdressIntel have detected a new Android malware named ‘Oscorp’. The malware aims to steal users’ login credentials and media content by exploiting accessibility services in the compromised devices. The malware prompts the user to install an accessibility service through which it can read what is present and typed on the screen.

The malware gets its name from the title of the login page of its C2 server. Oscorp was identified in a domain from which it downloads the malicious file clientassistance.apk uploaded to the remote server. Once installation is completed, the user is asked to enable accessibility service which further initiates communication with a C2 server for additional actions and retrieves additional commands.

The malware is also capable of using keylogger functionality to steal passwords or other sensitive data typed by users, uninstalling apps on the infected devices, making calls and sending text messages, stealing cryptocurrency wallet addresses and credentials and stealing PINs for Google two-factor authentication. Moreover, the malware forces the user into granting extra privileges by opening the Settings app again and again and displays various phishing pages. The malware mostly focuses on apps that store sensitive information like banking and messaging apps.
