Dangerous Joker malware runs in applications on Google Play


Joker malware a year first appeared in early 2017. Unfortunately, Google has not yet been able to eliminate it, and from time to time an application containing this malware will appear on Google Play. A new report from 91mobiles points to another 8 dangerous applications. We, therefore, recommend that you check your phone to see if you have accidentally installed one of the applications.


Dangerous malware Joker back on Google Play


Malware Joker has been discovered in the following applications:

  • Auxilliary Message

  • Element Scanner

  • Fast Magic SMS

  • Free CamScanner

  • Go Messages

  • Super Message

  • Super SMS

  • Travel Wallpapers

Google has already been notified of these applications and immediately downloaded them from Google Play. But before that happened, a relatively large number of users managed to download them. An application that contains Joker malware requests permission to manage and make phone calls, access contacts, and read notifications. So the application behaves seemingly normally, but in the background, you subscribe to premium services without knowing anything about it.
