Browser that resembles Chrome distributes malware

Users who have downloaded the "Magic Browser" from the Google Play Store should immediately uninstall, as security investigators have revealed this is another trojan that has been able to penetrate Google's online application store.

The Magic Browser application had been launched in PlayStore as an alternative to Google Chrome, displaying significant similarities to the original traveler, while it was taken tens of thousands of times in less than one month.

The application has the ability to send text messages to premium services and phone numbers controlled by the attackers, leading to high charges for the victims. To avoid detection, the malicious app also has the ability to delete incoming messages, but also to turn off device sound alerts.

According to Kaspersky Lab's analysis, the application uses 11 different ways to send SMS and implements these methods in an unusual way: by making process loading errors after receiving a command from the C & C Server. In addition to sending premium rate SMS, the app also has the ability to open promotional URLs, as well as pages that carry charges for WAP devices, costing the victims.

The app has now been removed from Google Play, but users who had installed it should immediately delete it and restore their smartphone to factory settings.
