Pre-installed malware found on new Android phones

Quote:
David Jevans, CTO and founder of Marble Security, recently received some bad feedback from a potential customer testing his company's product, which helps organizations manage and secure their mobile devices.

"They basically said 'Your stuff doesn't work'," Jevans said. "It thinks Netflix is malicious."

Marble Security performs static code analysis of Android and iOS applications, which shows what the code is supposed to do. Apps are also run through an emulator with instrumentation that allows analysts to get a larger view of how an application performs. They also check an app's network traffic to see if it is communicating with known malicious servers.

After taking a close look at the suspicious application, Jevans said they found it wasn't the real Netflix app.

"We're like, yeah, this isn't the real Netflix," Jevans said "You've got one that has been tampered with and is sending passwords and credit card information to Russia."
