Cloned banking app stealing usernames sneaks into Google Play

This week, Lookout became aware of a cloned banking app in the Google Play store, stealing users’ credentials, but curiously, not their passwords.

We alerted Google to the issue, which immediately removed the app. All Lookout users are protected from this app.

The malware, called BankMirage, targets the customers of an Israeli bank called Mizrahi Bank. The authors put a wrapper around the bank’s legitimate app and redistributed it on the Google Play store, pretending to be the financial institution.

Once a victim opens the app, the malware loads the login form, which is an in-app html page that has been changed to siphon off the victim’s user ID’s as they enter their credentials. It’s effectively a phishing attack.
