1 Million Compromised Google Accounts – 86 Goolian Infected Apps – In Sort Order

“Gooligan” Android Malware Compromised 1 Million Google Accounts by Bogdan Popa.

From the post:

Security experts at Check Point have discovered a new very aggressive form of Android malware that already compromised no less than 1 million Google accounts and which can infect approximately 74 percent of the Android phones currently on the market.

The firm warns that the malware which they call Gooligan is injected into a total of 86 Android apps that are delivered through third-party marketplaces (you can check the full list of apps in the box at the end of the article). Once installed, these apps root the phone to get full access to the device and then attempt to deploy malicious software which can be used to steal authentication tokens for Google accounts.

This pretty much gives the attackers full control over the targeted Google accounts, and as long as vulnerable phones have Gmail, Google Drive, Google Chrome, YouTube, Google Photos, or any other Google app that can be used with an account, there’s a big chance that the attack is successful.

The article also lists 86 Goolian infected apps, in no particular order. (Rhetorical questions: Why do people make it difficult for readers? What is their payoff?)

To save you from digging through and possibly missing an infected app, here are the 86 Googlian infected apps in dictionary order:
