SBI, ICICI and more banking apps targeted by new malware

The newly discovered Android malware is targeting 232 banking apps including several Indian banks.
Some of the banking apps being targeted by new Android malware include Axis Mobile, HDFC Bank MobileBanking,
SBI Anywhere Personal, HDFC Bank MobileBanking Lite, iMobile by ICICI Bank, IDBI Bank GO Mobile+, Abhay by IDBI Bank Ltd, IDBI Bank GO Mobile,
Baroda mPassbook, Union Bank Mobile Banking, and Union Bank Commercial Clients.

The new Android Banking Trojan known as "Android.banker.A9480" was discovered by Quick Heal Security Labs
and it is claimed to be designed for stealing login credentials, hijacking SMSs, uploading contact lists and SMSs on a malicious server.

"Android.banker.A9480 is being distributed through a fake Flash Player app on third-party stores.
This is not surprising given that Adobe Flash is one of the most widely distributed products on the Internet.
Because of its popularity and global install base, it is often targeted by attackers," Quick Heal explains in a blog post.
