A large-scale malware campaign on Huawei’s AppGallery has led to approximately 9,300,000 installs of Android trojans masquerading as over 190 different apps.
The trojan is detected by Dr.Web as ‘Android.Cynos.7.origin’ and is a modified version of the Cynos malware designed to collect sensitive user data.
The discovery and report come from researchers at Dr. Web AV, who notified Huawei and helped them remove the identified apps from their store.
