Six Arrested Over Japanese Android Porn Virus

samzenpus posted about 2 years ago | from the calling-dirty dept.

Android 92

AZA43 writes "Tokyo police have arrested six men, including two IT executives and one former tech exec, in connection with an Android malware campaign that netted $265,000. The men created a piece of Android malware that they disguised as a video player and distributed through an adult website. The app stole personal information and attempted to extort money for data 'protection services.' The malware doesn't appear to be particularly sophisticated, but it convinced more than 200 horny Japanese dudes to shell out $1200 each. And the arrests are one of, if not the, first time a major police force brought down criminals who used Android malware to extort a significant chunk of cash."

If you wanted to catch women in a scam like this you'd have to do it a little differently. Instead of straight porn, have the scam work in a erotic novel that women like to read. When you get to a steamy part, pop up an add saying that you'll send 'Mr McStud' to their house. If they fall for it, have the scam be that they need to pay $1200 so they don't tell husband+world that she ordered a male prostitute.

I thought the stereotypical woman-oriented scam involved taking a photograph of a fiftysomething woman, then placing a massively photoshopped version of the exact same photo beside it and saying how "this 54-year-old woman looks 25!" and "doctors hate her" yadda yadda.

Oh, and some geolocated bullshit claiming that she's a resident of your hometown (except when they clearly can't figure it out and use the location of your ISP hundreds of miles away instead...)

Dermatologist here. Posting as AC via TOR for obvious reasons - if my fellow professionals found out I am breaking the code and talking about this, they would kill my family and make me watch. We are doing everything we can to stop this woman, but the truth she has uncovered is just too powerful. We're not doing this just to protect our profession, but because the first-world economy is dependent on our spending. If this gets out, and people stop going to dermatologists, it could mean the end of civilization as we know it. Damn that woman!

Anyway, there is a Windows "virus" like this too in Japan. The funny part is that my friend called me over in a panic, and it took me like 5 minutes to disable. (It was a some kind of special "HTML Application" .hta that IE apparently allows to do whatever the hell it wants, including install itself to be launched at start-up).

Though I am no where near the best qualified here to answer you but will attempt to do so anyway. Any OS can get "malware", however a *nix OS at some point requires either active agreement by the computer's operator to be installed or active attack of an exploitable programming error and/or socially engineered user rights. Further in the title section it would appear to be a slashdot editorial error to call this a "virus" as that would imply a self-replicating nature for the "malware" not requiring human interaction. Neither the article or the synopsis calls it a virus.

That would be true with any modern OS (yes, even windows, unless you're running XP with admin rights)

In this case, it's an Android app, so when you install it, it tells you what it can access on your phone. Yet, users didn't cancel the installation, apparently.

alvinrod (889928) | about 2 years ago | (#40362455)

I don't think there have been any large pieces of malware released for iOS, but they're possible. Charlie Miller had snuck an app into the app store that could have functioned as malware if here weren't just doing it as a proof of concept. Also, every time a new jailbreak is released for iOS, it could potentially be used for malware, especially some of the older jailbreaks that simply required loading a PDF or visiting a web page.

Apple's security model does help to prevent some cases where it's easier for Android to be targeted, but otherwise iOS could be infected. I'm sure we'll see one eventually. Whether it's someone slipping something by a reviewer or someone who develops a jailbreak deciding that they can get a lot of money selling it on the black market, it's bound to happen given the popularity of the platform and how much data is available on a person's mobile device these days.

Re:But /. said Linux don't get malware? (-1, Flamebait)

For 4 years it's been theoretically possible that one day there might be some malware on iOS.

Of course good old Android has been true to to it's ideal of offering choice. There's quite a variety of malware on offer for that platform.

romanval (556418) | about 2 years ago | (#40363283)

Say what you will about the 'walled garden', but one hurdle for malware makers is Apple's requirment of their legally binding identity (a person or business with a true name, address, contact info) in order for Apple to do business with you. Most shady fuckers would rather stay anonymous.

You have CPU in your user name and you don't know that a trojan is not a virus? Get everybody now using Windows to switch to Ubuntu and you'll see a lot of Ubuntu trojans, but still no Ubuntu viruses. I'm not sure even Windows even gets viruses any more; your OS has to be pretty dammned crappy for a virus to work.

You have to be tricked into installing a trojan. You don't have to be tricked to be infected with a virus.

Oh and it's "trojan horse". You don't get infected by a Trojan (a citizen of the city of Troy), but get infected by a trojan horse. If you can be a nitpicky prick about my word "virus" than I can be nitpitcky too.

highphilosopher (1976698) | about 2 years ago | (#40362711)

Correction. There are two ways to be infected by a trojan:

1. Buy condoms that aren't sealed (of the Trojan brand of course).

2. Buy a cheap hooker in Troy

Either one could work fine for you right?

Both of which are how many years old? GP made the (silly*) assumption that Windows PCs do not get viruses anymore, and your choice of examples does more to prove them right than prove them wrong. For an obligatory car analogy:

GP: "Do cars even use leaded gasoline anymore?"

You: "Cars from the early 70's do."

Me: "Which has what to do with cars from, say, the last 5 years?"

If you can be a nitpicky prick about my word "virus" than I can be nitpitcky too.

Except that there was no nitpickery going on regarding the term "virus".

Seriously, do you have a mental disorder [slashdot.org]? It would really help our ability to have a civil discussion if we knew the reason for your non sequiturs.

mcgrew (92797) | about a year ago | (#40369635)

"Trojan" is short for "trojan horse" and hasn't used wooden horses for that trick since the ancient Greeks.

The Sony XCP rootkit was indeed a trojan, and wasn't a virus. You had to insert the music CD and run the programs. My daughter infected my computer with it, she wouldn't have run the program if she had the slightest inkling that a big, respected company like Sony would deliberately sabotage their paying customers' equipment.

The only real virus I ever got was way back in the early nineties when I took some work home on a floppy, the PC I was using had been infected by a co-worker with the boot sector virus Michelangelo.

vawwyakr (1992390) | about 2 years ago | (#40362701)

These people elected to install a program on their phone from a porn site without considering the security implications. This wasn't a virus breaking in through some security hole. This was a program that required the user to turn off a security setting on the phone and then install ignoring the security page (or they thought "sure it seems completely normal that some porn video player requires those security settings"). So the only blame here is the user doing something entirely stupid. iOS of course fixes this by assuming its users are stupid and locking them into only allowing apps from their market to be installed.

Essentially all jailbreak techniques are application of malware principles (but for a good purpose from user's PoV). For example, some time ago your iphone could get rooted (and jailbroken) by visiting a certain webpage. This vulnerability has since been long fixed, but as long as there are ways to jailbreak, there are vectors for malware through same backdoors.

Re:But /. said Linux don't get malware? (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 2 years ago | (#40363559)

That's mostly true. There have been some image processing bugs which have allowed sites like jailbreakme.com to work, but most of the time jailbreaking is done by hijacking the DFU process and disabling the code signing requirement (or installing another trusted certificate). It really isn't feasible for malware to utilize this vector, unless the malware has infected the desktop OS first.

A while back all the Monitizers figured out if you don't hide the data behind an app, anybody with a bit of sense could make a better program than you and take all your business, hell someone might even open source it and kill a lot of the profit in the market. At one time many software providers had a lockin on their customers with binary software and undocumented file formats. With the rising of the internet a lot of closed file formats died along with their parent companies and a era of openness ensued. Now again we have a new form of lock-in called the cloud where a black-box app sends data off to the twisted nether. If they don't give you a way to export your data to an open format of some type, you've taken a step back in many ways.

There are lots of PC scam which does pretty much the same thing over the years in Japan - you click on the "free" porn links which asks for basic user registration for creating an account, and by the time you finished watching the porn the site scares you by displaying your IP address and a general location of your physical address deduced from the IP on a pop up and claims that by watching the porn videos on the site you own them X amount of yen which you must transfer into an account within a certain time frame or else they would send a bill to your house and/or workplace to claim the money you "own" them. Most non-tech people gets scared by the time they see the IP address and the physical address and many more are too afraid of the shame of being revealed to have watched porn and thus cough up the money.

And you're assuming that Apple is the sole mobile OS company to do this? The Google Play store is in fact scanned regularly for malware, and it does get removed and developer accounts do get banned. The major difference between the Android and iOS environments is that on my phone I can download and install an app directly from a website. I don't need to do that, and I understand that those apps have not been vetted like apps in the Google Play store, but it remains an option for me. It's not an option for you.
