 Millions Download New Trojan Discovered in Android Market


Symantec has discovered a new Android botnet that is still thriving in the Android Market and has already been downloaded several million times this year.

The Trojan 'Android.Counterclank' was packaged in at least 13 free games published by three different publishers, making it harder to trace. Symantec notified Google on Thursday and at press time, 9 of the apps were still available in Google's official app store. Click on the publisher's name to see which apps are still up:

Published by iApps7 Inc:
Counter Elite Force
Counter Strike Ground Force
CounterStrike Hit Enemy
Heart Live Wallpaper
Hit Counter Terrorist
Stripper Touch Girl

From publisher Ogre Games:
Balloon Game
Be Millionaire
Wild Man

From publisher redmicapps:
Pretty women lingerie puzzle
s3xy Girls Photo Game
s3xy Girls Puzzle
s3xy Women Puzzle

According to Symantec researcher Irfan Asrar, ‘Counterclank’ can carry out commands from a remote control center on your mobile device. According to Symantec's virus definition, it steals information and can potentially display ads on your device.

“When the package is executed, a service with the same name may be seen running on a compromised device. Another sign of an infection is the presence of the Search icon above on the home screen,” Asrar wrote.

No information on geographic scope has been given, but Asrar said that the sheer number of downloads, 1-5 million, makes it the most widespread piece of mobile malware found so far this year.

Less than half those games have something to do with s3xual sh*t, everything else is just upon a person's interest.

But you're admitting you have to watch what you download in the Android Market now?

Downside of making everything so open, less oversight for the bad stuff.

Google's shown that they learn from their mistakes, but Im not gonna front and act like it's not a big issue. Im sure they have the best security for their services, so why not for android. the market can be regulated for malware and still be open. and dont worry I still think with all of android's problems that it's still better than ios

I wonder what kind of information it's stealing.. that's the thing about these "malware" apps without Superuser there's really not much they can do and I highly doubt that someone with Superuser is going to give permissions to s3xy Girl Puzzle

You can upload whatever you want to the Android Market. They don't care.
