Fake crypto MyEtherWallet once again infiltrated Google Play without arousing the suspicion of the censors of the store. Fake as in the previous two times, collecting payment information, allowing attackers to capture cryptocurrency savings of their victims.
When you log in the fake MyEtherWallet the app request entering the secret phrase of 12 words — supposedly to verify your identity. In fact, after making this simple action all of digital cash stored in the wallet, left in the wrong hands.
As reported by Lucas Stefanko, who discovered the forgery, a fake application lasted no more than four days before it was removed from the range of Google Play. Fortunately, during this time of suffering from the destructive activities of fraudsters is not managed by any user.
The difficulty of detecting fake apps like this is that, as a rule, they do not contain malicious code. The only thing that I expect the creators of the fakes, the carelessness of the users who by mistake disclose your payment information.
