Latest news reports regarding Trojan, is an embarrassment for Google, who designed the Android system with security at the forefront of their minds. Google’s Android devices are the new target of Trojan. A Trojan horse, or Trojan, is malware that appears to perform a desirable function for the user prior to run or install but instead facilitates unauthorized access of the user’s computer system. Known in security circles as Geinimi, the Trojan is powerful enough to compromise the personal data on a user’s Smartphone and send it to remote servers.
Trojan is the most sophisticated Android malware its security researchers have seen to date. What’s more, Geinimi is also the first Android malware in the wild that displays botnet-like capabilities. That means once the malware is installed on a user’s phone, it has the potential to receive commands from a remote server that allow the owner of that server to control the phone. Geinimi is effectively being ‘grafted’ onto repackaged versions of legitimate applications, primarily games, and distributed in third-party Chinese Android app markets.
The good news for Android users is that there is no evidence that Geinimi is distributed through third-party Chinese app stores. To download an app from a third-party app store, Android users need to enable the installation of apps from “unknown sources.” Although Geinimi could be packaged into applications for Android phones in other geographic regions, it has not seen any applications compromised by the Geinimi Trojan in the official Google Android Market.
Antivirus softwares are designed to detect and delete Trojan horses and prevent them from ever being installed. Although it is possible to remove a Trojan horse manually, it requires a full understanding of how that particular Trojan horse operates. In addition, if a Trojan horse has possibly been used by a hacker to access a computer system, it will be difficult to know what damage has been done and what other problems have been introduced. In situations where the security of the computer system is critical, it is advisable to simply erase all data from the hard disk and reinstall the operating system and required software.
