If you also use Huawei’s smartphone and download the app from its playstore, then read this news quickly.
If you use Huawei’s phone then it is bad news for you because more than 5 lakh Huawei users’ phones have been infected with dangerous malware. According to Bleepingcomputer’s report, more than five million Huawei users who downloaded the app from Huawei’s official App Store are infected with malware called Joker.
Researchers have discovered 10 harmful apps in Huawei’s AppGallery that contained malicious commands and code for control servers to receive configurations and additional components.
The app was masked through functional apps
Anti-virus maker Doctor Web discovered that these malicious apps maintained their advertised functionality, but downloaded the components that subscribed to the premium mobile service to users. To keep users in the dark, the malware-affected app requested access to notifications that could help hackers intercept the confirmation codes received via SMS through a subscription service.
These 10 apps are dangerous for users
According to the researchers, this malware can make a user subscribe to the maximum five services. However, it can also modify this limit at any time. The list of malicious applications includes a virtual keyboard, a camera app, a launcher, an online messenger, a sticker collection, coloring programs, and a game. Most of these apps are made by Shanxi Kuailaipai Network Technology Company Limited. At the same time, two apps belong to another company. These apps have been downloaded by more than 538,000 Huawei users.
Quickly get this work done
Doctor Web gave information about these malicious apps to Huawei and the company immediately removed it from the app gallery. While new users cannot download this app, old users who have this app will have to do manual cleanup. Read below the names of these 10 apps…
