The malicious code will appear a dialog box informing the new system upgrade, but when the user presses agree to download the update to the device, the software will take advantage of this to take some of the powers on the smartphone for espionage purposes, such as call recording, taking photos from smartphones, peek at messages (even messaging apps like WhatsApp), determine the user's location via GPS on a smartphone or can even find and steal files from smartphones ...

 The data and information collected by malicious code will be sent to external servers for hackers to occupy.  The operation of the malware is completely secret making the user unaware that he is being watched by a bad person.

 This malware is part of a sophisticated espionage campaign by zLabs security experts.  Bad guys can install malicious code on users' smartphones in many ways, including tricking them into installing a new app, sending emails or messages with a link to download the malicious app, etc.

 Experts warn users not to install applications from unknown sources to avoid being infected with malicious code, especially do not install applications sent by strangers via text messages or emails.  In the case of a dialog box for system update on a smartphone, it is necessary to double check whether it is the message from the smartphone, or it is a dialog dialog box fake upgrade generated by malicious code to steal user information.
