These apps are stealing your data. Urgently remove them!

Not for the first time in the app store from Google get programs that harm your smartphone and may steal your confidential information. So recently researchers from Digital Security have discovered a previously unknown type of advertising malware in more than 200 applications for Android. And, worst of all, some of these programs have been downloaded by millions of users.

The malware is called “SimBad”. After installation, it creates a backdoor that allows its developers to remotely install any third party software without the user’s knowledge. Digital Security has already informed Google about the vulnerability, and all apps were removed from Google Play Store. However, they could remain on users ‘ smartphones. So to get rid of them. Judging by the title, almost all of them are games, so even if you do not have installed, it could make your child or younger brother\sister. So you better check your smartphone just in case. Here is a list of the most dangerous applications (each of them according to the report has been downloaded at least 5 million times):

  • Snow Heavy Excavator Simulator
  • Hoverboard Racing
  • Real Tractor Farming Simulator
  • Ambulance Rescue Driving
  • Heavy Mountain Bus Simulator 2018
  • Emergency Fire Truck Driver
  • Farming Tractor Simulator Real Harvest
  • Car Parking Challenge
  • Speed Boat Jet Ski Racing
  • Water Car Surfing Stunt
  • Offroad Wood Transport Truck Driver 2018
  • Volumen booster & Equalizer
  • Prado Parking Adventure
  • Oil Tanker Transport Truck Driver

Full list of programs can be found at this link.

If you think that it is enough just to uninstall the application using standard Windows tools and check the whole system with antivirus, you are wrong. Indeed, we recently reported that not all antiviruses are good at their tasks. In this case, the malware need a slightly different approach. And even if the application was not in the list above, once again checking system will not prevent.

For starters, put the phone in safe mode. This method may vary in different models from different manufacturers, but it can be easily found in the user manual or on the Internet. Also it would be nice to completely disconnect the smartphone from the world wide web.

Next, go to “Settings” and click on the “Applications” tab to find a list of all programs installed on your smartphone. Now remove unwanted software and check the entire list on the stock apps which you are not familiar with. If there is a app name or icon that you see for the first time, it may well be a “companion app” installed via the backdoor. Just in case “fight” an unfamiliar name on the Internet and in the list of downloads Google Play Store. Then safely remove the infection. All. Your smartphone clean again.

However, to neglect the security measures in the future, still not worth it and no need to install questionable programs. Especially from unverified sources.

  1. Hello This post was really remarkable, particularly since I was looking for thoughts on this issue last Sunday

  2. Thanks for the ideas you have provided here Something important I would like to talk about is that laptop or computer memory demands generally go up along with other advances in the technologies For instance, if new generations of processor chips are brought to the market, there’s usually an equivalent increase in the type demands of both the computer memory and hard drive space This is because software program operated through these processor chips will inevitably rise in power to use the new engineering

  3. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
