“New ways of perpetrating fraud are regularly brought to the attention of our cybersecurity experts and we recently discovered new malware that steals Facebook logins.

“We had Google shut down those applications. Evina managed to successfully reverse-engineer the malware which enabled us to protect end-users against it,” the cyber research firm said.
 
The above malicious apps, Evina says, collectively had over 25 lakh downloads.
 
The security firm further said that when an application is launched on your phone, the malware queries the application name and if it is a Facebook application, the malware will launch a browser that loads Facebook at the same time.
 
“The browser is displayed in the foreground which makes you think that the application launched it. When you enter your credentials into this browser, the malware executes java script to retrieve them. The malware then sends your account information to a server,” it added.
