Trojanized Android Ahmyth RAT spreads via legitimate apps (Mar 06, 2018)

SonicWall Capture Labs Threats Research team observed an Android Remote Administration Tool (RAT) named Ahmyth which is being trojanized into other Android apps and is getting distributed in the wild. Upon infecting an Android device this RAT can send sensitive information present on the device like SMS and call logs as well as perform functions like taking a picture, sending a text message or record audio via the microphone.

After obtaining a couple of malicious RAT samples we investigated further revealing the origins of this RAT. We found a Github repository that hosts the code for this RAT
