The StrandHogg vulnerability
Promon security researchers have found proof of a dangerous Android vulnerability, dubbed ‘StrandHogg’, that allows real-life malware to pose as legitimate apps, with users unaware they are being targeted. Lookout, a partner of Promon, confirmed that they have identified 36 malicious apps exploiting the vulnerability. Among them were variants of the BankBot banking trojan observed as early as 2017. *During testing, Promon researchers found that all of the 500 most popular apps (as ranked by app intelligence company 42 Matters) are vulnerable to StrandHogg. *All versions of Android affected, incl. Android 10 (note: the permission harvesting exploit is only from Android 6.0 and onwards).
