About Security Cloud

F-Secure's Security Cloud is an online service that tracks the security reputation of common programs, files and websites. If a questionable program or file is found during a scan, your F-Secure security product will send a query to the Security Cloud to get its most recent reputation rating. The product will then use that information (and if needed, further analysis) to choose whether to block, quarantine or remove the program or file.

The Security Cloud rating for the program or file indicates that it has code similar to Backdoor:Android/Hummingbad- app that uses deceptive measures to trick users into clicking on advertisements (a practice known as 'clickfraud').

It also installs a backdoor with root privileges on the affected device, allowing it to silently install other programs and remain persistent even after a system reboot.
