Summary

Singlejump.C (renamed Onehop.C) is a malicious SIS file dropper, that disables most well known third party file managers and Anti-Virus software. It uses modified Cabir to send itself forward and drops Singlejump.B torjan.

The modified Cabir is started automatically when the Singlejump.C is installed and will start spreading. When spreading from infected phone, the SIS files it sends will contain only the Singlejump.B.

Singlejump.C tries to disable F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus by replacing it's files with non-functional versions. However as F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus is capable of detecting Singlejump.C by using generic detection. The Anti-Virus will detect the infected SIS file and prevent it from being installed. Provided that the Anti-Virus is in realtime scan mode as it is by default.
