Permanent link Tool: Red Alert

NamesRed Alert
Red Alert 2.0
CategoryMalware
TypeBanking trojan, Credential stealer
Description(Bleeping Computer) While Red Alert is a new addition to the mobile banking scene, the trojan works similarly to past threats. The trojan waits in hiding until the user opens a banking or social media app. When this happens, the trojan shows an HTML-based overlay on top of the original app, alerting the user of an error, and asking him to reauthenticate.

Red Alert then collects the user's credentials and sends them to its C&C server.
