If you use your Android phone for banking in India, this notice is for you

The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), the country’s cybersecurity agency, has a warning for all those who use their smartphones for banking. In a statement, CERT-In said that a new mobile banking ‘Trojan’ virus, SOVA, which can stealthily encrypt an Android phone for ransom and is difficult to uninstall, is targeting Indian customers.

The virus has the ability to collect usernames and passwords through keylogging, steal cookies and add fake overlays to various apps. The hackers, who unleashed the virus, were previously targeting countries like the US, Russia, and Spain, but in July 2022 it added several other countries, including India, to its target list.
