Hummingbad has been replaced as the top mobile malware threat. It has been usurped by Triada, a modular backdoor for Android. According to Check Point Security, Triada grants super-user privileges to downloaded malware, helping it to be embedded into system processes. It has also been seen spoofing URLs loaded in the browser. And in January, based on data from the World Cyber Threat Map, Triada edged past Hummingbad, ending that baddie’s year-long reign. Hummingbad is an Android malware that establishes a persistent rootkit on the device, installs fraudulent applications, and with slight modifications, could enable additional malicious activity such as installing a key-logger, stealing credentials and bypassing encrypted email containers used by enterprises. The No.3 mobile malware threat is Hiddad—an Android malware which repackages legitimate apps and then releases them to a third-party store.Its main function is displaying ads; however, it is also able to gain access to key security details built into the OS, allowing an attacker to obtain sensitive user data. In total, mobile malware accounted for 9% of all recognized malware attacks by Check Point.
