Some Kaspersky experts have found out a new malicious app in the Google Play Store, which is related to Pokémon Go. The name of the app is “Guide for Pokémon Go” and according to the security company, is it capable of seizing root access right on Android devices. Therefore, the app is able to install or uninstall apps from the phone and display ads. The app has been downloaded about 500,000 times, and has infected about 6,000 devices.
In a recent statement, Kaspersky said that “Infection of the device is not guaranteed. After connecting with its command server and uploading details of the infected device, including country, language, device model and OS version, the Trojan will wait for a response. Only if it hears back will it proceed with further requests and the downloading, installation and implementation of additional malware modules.”
