Flytrap is only designed for hack as many facebook accounts as possible. To gain account access, malware collects information such as email address, IP address, smartphone geographic position and connection cookies. With this information in hand, an experienced hacker can use a Facebook account to spread malware to other phones.

Spotted Zimperium 9 Android apps currently spread across the web that contain Flytrap malware. Of course, we invite you to urgently uninstall them if they are present on your smartphone:

  • good GG

To convince users to install apps that hide Flytrap, hackers proposed Fake Netflix promo codes or Google AdWords promo codes. Once the app is installed, it will prompt the user to connect to their Facebook account.

This is where hackers get their hands on what they want. “While the user logs into their official account, Trojan FlyTrap hijacks session information for malicious purposes ”, warns the company. As always, it is recommended to be careful when downloading an app outside of the Play Store.
