Android Clipper found on Google Play
The first Android Trojan Clipper – that exchanges cryptocurrency address in copied clipboard – was discovered on Google Play. Android Clipper targeted Bitcoin and Ethereum cryptocurrency addresses when being copied in to clipboard and replaced them with the attacker’s wallet address. Once this transaction is sent, it can not be canceled.
In the video I explained what is Clipper and demonstrated its functionality including possible attack scenario.
