Android Malware Targeting Users with Fake Android Market Website, URL that is nothing like the real Android Market website, which is https://market.android.com.
When users click on the in-app ad, they are taken to something that looks like the official Google Android Market ,what you’d expect if you’re about to download an Android app. However, it’s really a website designed to look just like the Android Market.
Once on that malicious Web page, users are prompted to download the advertised app by clicking a button that appears to be just like any download button for any Android app. The Trojan then begins to download.
The user is then prompted via a dialogue screen to click a notification and then install a specific file again, a different process from installing an app from the Android Market.
Quick Heal blocks fake website as,
Downloaded malicious applications are detected by Quick Heal Mobile Security as “Android.FakeNotify.B”.
