Researchers at Cisco Talos have discovered a new Trojan that masquerades as the Google Play Store when it infects an Android device. Dubbed, ‘GPlayed’ the Trojan not only labels itself “Google Play Marketplace”, but also uses an icon that looks very similar to the Play Store icon. The researchers note that the Trojan is “extremely powerful” as it has the capability to “adapt after it is deployed”. It’s noted that it has the capability to remotely load plugins, inject scrips and even compile new .NET code to be executed.
