Hi……...What do you guys/girls know about this one, and are our Androids protected from this?

 

Thanks,

Hello @car100op 

Welcome to the Webroot Community Forum.

My best advise is to ask Webroot Support or maybe ask @TylerM  (Sr. Security Analyst & Community Manager) and he might be able to answer your question? Also this article was posted on our forum by @Jasper_The_Rasper HERE :wink:

Yes this specific Remote Access Trojan we have great coverage in protection against this type of malware. Just note that it appears the application utilizes a number of features it must ask user permission for, such as device admin privilege and GPS permission. It is important to note device admin access should always be a cause for concern and I would advise users to double-check the app they are installing (especially if they were not intentionally installing an app when this occurs) and ensure they've got the correct, official version of an app before ever approving this access.

 

But we do have protection against this type of malware. Hope this helps
