GodFather: Android Malware

GodFather is a notorious Android banking trojan known for targeting banking users, mostly in European countries. Recently, CRIL identified several GodFather Android samples masquerading as MYT application.

The GodFather Android malware, after successful installation on the victim’s device, steals sensitive data such as SMSs, basic device details, including installed apps data, and the device’s phone number. Apart from these, it can also control the device screen using VNC, forwarding incoming calls of the victim’s device and injecting banking URLs.
