Pokémon Go: Built-in backdoor for Android-App discovered

Pokémon, the adorable little pocket critters, are back. These little Japanese animals make a comeback as virtual-reality-game for smartphones. Attackers try to use the popularity of this brand new game for themselves and prey on impatient gamers who cannot wait for the game to be released: at least one malicious version of the app has been discovered. In a file sharing network, a version of the app installer was found that contained a remote control for Android devices. It appears that the legitimate app was repackaged with some added malware using a tool called “DroidJack”. The tool itself has legitimate use cases for developers, but in this case it was used to add a malicious piece of software called “AndroRAT”. G DATA customers are protected from the malicious app which is detected as “Android.Trojan.Kasandra.B”.
