Technical Details



Trojan-Spy:Android/Wabek is distributed under the guise of a 'night vision camera' app, which allegedly allows a user to take photos at night without having to use the flash, using the device's camera. During installation, the app requests multiple permissions, such as reading and writing SMS messages and recording video and audio, as well access to the camera.

Once installed, the app collects phone numbers from installed social media apps and uses the harvested numbers to subscribe users to premium mobile services. For more information, see:
