A newly discovered Android vulnerability is actively exploited by malware such as the BankBot banking Trojan and it impacts all versions of the operating system up to and including Android 10.

The new vulnerability discovered by Promon security researchers was named StrandHogg and it can be exploited without the need of rooting the device.

Once exploited, it allows malicious apps to camouflage as almost any legitimate app, with Promon finding that “all of the 500 most popular apps (as ranked by app intelligence company 42 Matters) are vulnerable to StrandHogg.”
