Android Malware – ‘BlackRock ‘

Context: Recently, the Security firm ThreatFabric has alerted about a new malware, called BlackRock.


  • It can steal information like passwords and credit card information.
  • It is based on the leaked source code of the Xeres malware, itself derived from malware called LokiBot.
  • The only big difference between BlackRock and other Android banking trojans is that it can target more apps than previous malwares.
  • The Trojan will redirect the victim to the HOME screen of the device if the victims tries to start or use antivirus software.
