Gustuff Malware attacks crypto-currencies and banking applications

Gustuff Malware

A new malware is making its mark on Android and attacking the most popular banking applications, as well as crypto-currencies. His name: Gustuff.
The greatest vigilance is required with Gustuff malware, because it is able to find its way onto your smartphone, in order to spy on the activities of your mobile applications related to online banking and cryptocurrency exchange platforms. Knowing that an account like eBay with full identifiers sells for an average of 11 euros for example on the Dark web, we can imagine the interest of hackers behind this new threat.

In addition, Gustuff malware is also able to grab funds from PayPal or Revolut accounts at the time of hacking. The most worrying thing is that the code of this malware is able to disable Google’s protection, which analyzes applications installed on the smartphone and called Google Play Protect.

Fortunately, Gustuff has not yet been discovered on the Play Store, but he is present on APKs of applications on third-party platforms. It is also important to pay particular attention in the coming weeks to SMS, WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger messages, as they are also a means of spreading Gustuff malware.
