Anubis Android Malware

Anubis first appeared on Russian hacking forums in 2016, shared as an open-source banking trojan with instructions on implementing its client and components.

In the years that followed, Anubis received further development work, and its newer code continued to be openly shared between actors.

In 2019, the malware added what appeared to be an almost functional ransomware module and found its way into Google’s Play Store through fake apps.

In 2020, Anubis returned through large-scale phishing campaigns, targeting 250 shopping and banking apps.

Anubis will display fake phishing login forms when users open up apps for targeted platforms to steal credentials. This overlay screen will be shown over the real app’s login screen to make victims think it’s a legitimate login form when in reality, inputted credentials are sent to the attackers.

There is no concrete information on the actors who currently distribute Anubis, as they were careful enough to hide their C2 infrastructure registration trace.

In the last week, our intelligence analysts identified new domains used to spread the malware campaign.
