SOVA Virus Attack

Recently the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) has issued a detailed security advisory against a new mobile banking ‘Trojan’ virus attack SOVA.

  • SOVA ‘Trojan’ virus spreading in Indian cyberspace secretly encrypts an Android phone for ransom.
  • A new banking malware is targeting bank customers using the ‘SOVA Android Trojan’ virus. This virus is capable of obtaining user names and passwords.
  • This malware hides itself within ‘fake Android applications’ displaying the ‘logos’ of legitimate applications such as Chrome, Amazon and the NFT (Non-Fungible Token) platform and misleads users to ‘install’ them.
  • This malware steals user information when users access their bank accounts through net banking applications.
  • This version of SOVA is targeting over 200 mobile applications and its attacks could result in ‘large-scale’ financial fraud.
