The Anubis Android banking malware is now targeting the customers of nearly 400 financial institutions in a new malware campaign.
The threat actors target financial institutions, cryptocurrency wallets, and virtual payment platforms by impersonating an Orange S.A. Android app that attempts to steal login credentials. The report comes from researchers at Lookout, who note that the malicious campaign is still in the testing and optimization phase.
Lookout's threat researcher Kristina Balaam told Bleeping Computer that this campaign isn't targeting only French customers of Orange S.A., but American users as well.
While we can’t be certain whether the app has been used in a successful attack, we do know they are targeting US banks including Bank of America, U.S. Bank, Capital One, Chase, SunTrust, and Wells Fargo.
