Trojan:Android/Plankton variants silently forward information about the device to a remote location. In addition, they download an additional file onto the 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 detection database 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.
Once installed on a device, Trojan:Android/Plankton will forward the following details (about the Plankton app itself) to a remote server:
On receiving this information, the server contacted returns a URL, from which Plankton retrieves a JAR file.
In addition to collecting the details for the Plankton app, the trojan will also collect the following information:
These details are also forwarded to the remote server.
Plankton variants are also able to perform the following actions on the device, among others:
