Technical Details

Exprespam.A is a trojan that harvests personal information from an infected device. It has been circulating in the unofficial Android app market and targets Android users in Japan. During the installation process, it requests for permissions which will essentially allow it to access or view these items:

  • Accounts listed in the Account Service
  • Internet
  • Phone state
  • User’s contacts data

Exprespam.A places an icon on the main application menu. When clicked to launch, it will display a message.

Meanwhile in the background, it collects information such as phone numbers and contact details (i.e. names and email addresses) stored on the device. The collected information is later forwarded to a remote server, http://ftuk[...]obat.com/.
