Technical Details

Tetus.A is an information stealing trojan disguised as an entertainment or social networking application, or a helper tool. It is distributed via a third-party Android app market, and may use the following package file names:

  • com.appsmediaworld.fitpal
  • com.appengines.fastphone
  • com.mobilityplus.friendly
  • com.coolmasterz.flirt
  • com.droidmojo.celebstalker
  • com.droidmojo.awesomejokes
  • com.stephbrigg5.batteryimprove
  • com.supersocialmob.allfriends
  • com.nogginfunsite.zgames

Tetus.A spies on incoming SMS messages. Once an event handler is successfully set, it will notify one of these command and control (C&C) servers:

  • http://[...]/android/[...]/tetulus.com
  • http://[...]/android-gaming-zone/[...]/.com

Whenever a new SMS message arrives, Tetus.A will turn the content into one long string (replacing spaces with ‘_’) and forward it to the C&C server. The server recognizes different infected devices by the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number.
