Google Shares List of Budget Smartphones with pre-installed Malware

Google has announced that some Android devices were pre-installed with a banking trojan named Triada, which was first discovered in 2016. Now, the company revealed the phones affected by the malware, including Cherry Mobile, Doogee, and Leagoo.

Google explained that the malware might be installed on devices during the supply chain process. Hence, the following handsets became infected even before consumers get it. The company still has no clue about how the malware occurred, but it’s clear that Triada can steal important data from banking apps, intercept chat messages, hack social media accounts, and spy on users.

Triada’s makers then earned money from ad revenues displayed by the spam apps installed in the phone.

Here are the smartphones with Triada malware:
