A new Trojan affecting Android devices has recently emerged in China.Naming as “Geinimi”.It has discovered by the Mobile Security Company.Also, this virus is automatically attached with some legitimate apps such as Monkey Jump 2, Sex Positions, President vs. Aliens, City Defrense and Baseball Superstars 2010.
How it Works:
When a host application containing Geinimi is launched on a user’s phone, the Trojan runs in the background and collects significant information that can compromise a user’s privacy. The specific information it collects includes location coordinates and unique identifiers for the device (IMEI) and SIM card (IMSI). At five minute intervals, Geinimi attempts to connect to a remote server using one of ten embedded domain names. A subset of the domain names includes www.widifu.com, www.udaore.com, www.frijd.com, www.islpast.com and www.piajesj.com. If it connects, Geinimi transmits collected device information to the remote server.
