Dvmap Virus, The First Malware With Code Injector......... Beware!

Dvmap,This malware name sounds strange right? ,apart from its strange name, it is very dangerous. It is the first malware with code injector. This malware is also called Trojan by Kaspersky Lab products because it insert its modules into the system and injects malicious code into the system runtime libraries.
Read on to see its level destruction.

Google playstore as we all know, is the most trusted place for Android users to install trusted and malware-free applications. This Dvmap seems to want to change this as it tends to inject malicious code into the system libraries in runtime, and up to 50,000 people has downloaded it. Luckily, that Kaspersky Lab reported the Trojan to Google, and it has now been removed from the store.

How The Trojan Or Dvmap Works

The Trojan uses a very interesting method and technique to bypass the Google Playstore security check by uploading a clean app to the store at the end of March, 2017, and would then update it with a malicious version for short period of time. Usually they would upload a clean version back on Google Play the very same day. They did this at least 5 times between 18 April and 15 May.

All the malicious Dvmap apps had the same functionality. They decrypt several archive files from the assets folder of the installation package, and launch an executable file from them with the name “start.”

Since it injects a malicious code in the library, you won't be able to get update on Google playstore but rather installing different versions of malware.

How To Prevent Your Phone From The Malware

•Do not download files (musics, videos, games and others) from untrusted sites.

•If your phone is affected, kindly factory reset your phone or Install a new firmware.

Hope this helps.
