A virus that makes calls to Android, called Android. Dialer. 7. origin, is one of the excellent examples of malware. Most recently, it was discovered by Dr. Web. The virus managed to make a lot of noise, since it is impossible to manually remove it, and the money quickly disappeared from the account.
Where does the money go from the phone? With such a question, users often turn to search engines, and the cause could be a malware infection of a mobile device. There are lots of viruses for gadgets, but Android. Dialer. 7. origin is very different from them, because even an experienced user is difficult to cope with it.
The virus is distributed under the guise of an erotic application, and after installing it, the user observes an error. An empty field appears on the main screen (no icon and name), and when you click on it, a call is made to a special paid number, after which a conversation is simulated and money is withdrawn from the account.
If the user tries to remove the malicious application, he will succeed only by removing the icon. Sly fraudsters did everything so that the victim did not even guess about the infection of the system in his gadget.
A virus can make calls on a full automaton and block the activation of the speaker. Thus, invisibly to the user, a call is made to a special number and money is transferred to the attackers.
