Cerberus banking Trojan infiltrates Google Play

The malware was found buried within a seemingly-innocent currency converter.

The cybersecurity team at Avast said the malicious app in question posed as a legitimate currency converter app designed for Spanish users.

The malware creates an overlay across existing banking and financial apps. Cerberus will lurk in the background, waiting for a user to input their account credentials, of which this information is then stolen and sent to the attacker’s system.
