Description of Judy Malware Virus

Judy Malware Virus is a program which has been widely distributed on Google Play store. This app contains code that sends infected devices to a target webpage, where they generate fraudulent clicks on the site’s adverts to make money for its creators. After the installation Judy virus connects to its Command and Control (C&C) server. It responds with malware payload that consists of three main components: JavaScript code, user agent string, and particular URLs. With the help of them, malware connects the affected device to an adware server and starts working as a browser: by opening particular pages it generates advertising-based revenue. Judy doesn’t appear to be stealing personal information and is just a means for crooks to make money on ad clicks. But it could mean you’re phone will be bombarded with all sorts of naughty ads – which might make you look very suspicious if your family or other half gets a hold of your phone.

Judy is found in 41 separate apps masquerading as games on the Play store including Chef Judy, Animal Judy and Fashion Judy. The malicious apps primarily included a series of casual cooking and fashion games under the “Judy” brand, a name borrowed for the malware itself. The nefarious nature of the programs went unnoticed in large part, according to Checkpoint, because its malware payload was downloaded from a non-Google server after the programs were installed. And you should know that “Judy Malware Virus” compromised data on infected phones. That Judy was able to hide on Google Play for so long highlights the tradeoffs of Android operating system, which is often seen as more open but less secure than Apple’s iOS.
