DroidDream.B is a Trojan that collects data from a device it was installed on.


Once the scan is complete, the F-Secure security product will ask if you want to uninstall the file, move it to the quarantine or keep it installed on your device.

A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:

  • Check for the latest database updates

    First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest updates, then try scanning the file again.

  • Submit a sample

    After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.

    Note: If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.

  • Exclude a file from further scanning

    If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.

    Note: You need administrative rights to change the settings.

Technical Details

DroidDream.B is a lighter version of its predecessor, DroidDream.A; it has no root privilege on the device it was installed on. It collects the following information from the device:

  • IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number
  • IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) number
  • Device model
  • SDK version
  • Installed applications

Unlike DroidDream.A that can silently install applications on the infected device without needing user action, the B variant's lack of root privilege means that any attempt to install an application will result in prompting a message to ask user to allow the installation.
