During this period, 360 Mobile Security Center continued to receive feedback from users that mobile phones were inexplicably downloaded and installed other applications, as well as automatic subscription deductions and other issues.


2. Lizard tail Trojan

Threats: Infecting system library files, replacing system files, injecting system processes, stealing user information, monitoring calls and text messages, subscribing to chargeback services


The "Lizard's Tail" Trojan is an evolution of the three generations of "Elder Trojan". The main malicious behavior has evolved from three generations of popularized APPs to monitoring phone messages and subscribing to SP deduction services. According to some user feedback, the monthly deductions amount to hundreds of yuan.


3. Fakedebugderg Trojan

From the discovery of the elder Trojan a few years ago, until now, the "FakeDebuggerd" family is very active. Although there are no technical highlights, this virus is easy to implement and has a high success rate, so it is used by many criminals.

Since 2013, the ROM-level embedded mobile phone virus "permission killer" has been successfully updated with nearly 300 ROMs and spread in some flash market through continuous update of variants, which has affected as many as 500,000 domestic users.


6. Andma

Threats: self-protection, execution of instructions issued by the cloud, promotion of APP


This Trojan has a low technical content, and its main purpose is to access the cloud to obtain an application download list after running, for malicious promotion. At the same time, it monitors its own related file changes to prevent itself from being cleared by security software.


7. Candy Trojan

Threats: disguise system files, upload user privacy, silently promote APP

The Trojan is embedded in the secondary packaged applications such as "Ju discount", "Mobile Cooling Master", and "KMPlayer" in the form of plug-ins, which confuse users who don't know the truth to download and install.

Once the user opens these applications, the Trojan will be released to the system / system / bin directory, disguised as zprop, boot_logo_updater, etc., and implant their own data files in the user / data directory.

The Trojan has the functions of downloading, enabling applications, deleting applications, and terminating the process. Without the user's knowledge, the APP promotes profits.


8. Wan Lan Trojan

Threats: Built-in ROM, execution of cloud instructions, promotion of APP


In mid-May 2015, the Security Center received feedback from users that mobile phones often automatically install new game applications. After analysis and investigation, it was discovered that a ROM-class mobile phone Trojan called "Wan Lan" is extending its devil's claws to users, and it is profiting through silent promotion.


9. FakeSysCmd


Threats: disguise system files, steal user privacy, maliciously promote, counter security software


The Trojan family pretends to replace system commands such as pm, adb_server, and sz. For example, pm is the system's software package management program. After the Trojan replaces the program, it can monitor and install and uninstall the APP by itself, or even disable security software.


10. Asshole

Threats: Silent elevation of rights, theft of user privacy, rogue promotion.


The Trojan author maliciously used the open source root framework. After the second packaging and compilation, the virus was embedded into common software or pornography in the form of a plug-in and spread through the software market or pornographic websites.

According to the data monitored by 360 Security Center, the Trojan often disguised as "ticket grabbing artifact", "traffic statistics", "look at midnight" and so on.

Once users use these software, this Trojan program will be implanted in the system directory and get the root permissions of the mobile phone without the user's knowledge, and download other Trojans or malware from the network, which is extremely harmful.
