A new Android Trojan called SpyNote has been identified by researchers who warn that attacks are forthcoming.
The Trojan, found by Palo Alto Networks’ Unit 42 team, has not been spotted in any active campaigns. But Unit 42 believes because the software is now widely available on the Dark Web, that it will soon be used in a wave of upcoming attacks.
Unit 42 discovered the Trojan while monitoring malware discussion forums. Researchers say that’s where they found a malware builder tool specifically designed to be used to create multiple versions of SpyNote Trojan.
