SimBad è il nuovo malware scovato sul Play Store: coinvolte 206 app, soprattutto giochi di simulazione

Roberto Artigiani -

I ricercatori di Check Point Research hanno identificato una nuova minaccia che ha infettato diverse app sul Play Store. È stata battezzata “SimBad” e coinvolge per la precisione 206 applicazioni, per lo più giochi di simulazione, che raggiungono un totale cumulato di circa 150 milioni di download.

Entrando nei dettagli il malware è stato localizzato all’interno dell’SDK RXDrioder che con tutta probabilità è stato usato dai vari sviluppatori coinvolti in maniera inconsapevole. Quella che viene identificata come una “campagna di infezione” pare che non abbia riguardato un paese specifico o degli utenti in particolare.

Una volta installata una delle app infette SimBad si inseriva nel dispositivo, nascondendosi dai menu delle applicazioni per continuare a girare in background all’insaputa dell’utente. Il suo codice lo fa connettere a un server remoto che può far comparire degli annunci pubblicitari, aprire URL nel browser e perfino installare altri programmi senza il consenso dell’utente.

Finora la minaccia sembra essersi limitata solamente alle pubblicità, ma non c’è dubbio che la sua struttura poteva consentire un’evoluzione ben più pericolosa. Google è stata avvertita del fatto ed ha prontamente rimosso dal Play Store tutte le applicazioni coinvolte. Vi invitiamo a controllare la lista qui sotto ed eventualmente rimuovere subito dal vostro dispositivo ogni app coinvolta.
