The 25 apps from the Play Store capable of hacking your Facebook

In total, the 25 applications have been downloaded 2.34 million times. Two of them (Super Wallpapers Flashlight and Padenatef) have been downloaded more than 500,000 times each.

The applications were all developed by the same group, Rio Reader LLC. Although they all worked as promised (screen capture tool, flashlight, video editing, etc.), each of them contained malicious code capable of detecting which other applications were open on the device.

If the application open in the background was Facebook, the malicious application would transpose a fake Facebook authentication page there in order to phish email addresses and passwords. The data was all sent to a remote server, according to Evina’s analysis.
