Hackers use slew of different ways to breach into a smartphone and gain access to the personal information including viruses, malware, worms, Trojan horses, phishing, et al. In fact, hackers these days have actually become creative with their data breaching ways. For instance, a new ransomware app threat has hit the Android smartphones recently that makes use of SMS text messages based around sex simulator game, to spread.
The malware, called Filecoder. C was first spotted on sites like Reddit and XDA forums where the malware appeared as spam messages that directed people to this sex simulator. It was tracked by Lukas Stefanko, a malware researcher at ESET, a Slovakia-based cybersecurity firm who found out that most of the messages posted on forums like Reddit and XDA comprised of explicit sexual content, porn, or even technical content.
Moreover, all the posts had either a malicious clickbait link or a QR codes present in them. But, this is not how the malware infection actually spread, it mainly spread through malicious SMS on Android phones.
Once installed on the phone, Fildecoder. C conducts an extensive search on the device where it looks for all the personal information including private photos, videos, contacts, documents, and other such files. It makes use of asymmetric and symmetric encryption where it encrypts these private files and generates a private-public key pair using RSA algorithm. Private key is ed to the command and control server and the public key remains on the device.
Now unlike most ransomwares, Filecoder. But, as is the case with most ransomware, Filecoder. C also asks for a specific payment amount, after which the malware promises to send the private key to the victim to decrypt their files.
