Kaspersky Lab: Armenia ranks 10th in Trojan attacks on mobile  applications in the world

ArmInfo.Armenia ranks 10th in Trojan attacks on mobile applications in the world, the local representative office of Kaspersky Lab reports. According to the company, in 2019, banking Trojans attacked 0.16% of mobile users in Armenia. In 2018, this  indicator was slightly higher - 0.51%, in 2017 - 0.12%.

However, as the company notes, the largest number of Trojan mobile  banking attacks in 2019 was recorded in Russia (0.72%). The country  has been a leader in this index for three consecutive years, where  various Trojan families "specialize" in stealing user accounts. These  Trojans are also relevant for other countries.  Thus, the Asacub  family of Trojans is the number one threat in Russia, as well as in  Tajikistan, Ukraine and Armenia.

Mobile Trojan applications for stealing data from banking  applications through their interfaces show their fake interface,  where an unsuspecting user enters bankcard information, which allows  the Trojan author to illegally withdraw money. These malicious  programs also often gain access to a bank verification code or SMS  containing payment information.

To protect against banking and other mobile Trojans, experts  recommend downloading applications only from official stores, such as  Google Play, and prohibiting the installation of software from  unauthorized sources. It is also worth periodically updating  applications, which eliminates the vulnerability to the systems used  by cybercriminals. It is advisable not to follow suspicious links in  email, SMS, messenger and social networks, and to grant permissions  only to those applications that are really necessary for work. You  need to use a reliable antivirus on your mobile device and regularly  check the system.
