Dissecting the Android KorBanker malware

KorBanker is a malware currently making the rounds on Android devices.

It’s only targeting banking customers in South Korea, especially customers of the following banks: Hana Bank, IBK One, KB Kookmin Bank, NH Bank, Woori Bank, and Shinhan Bank.

For the coders of this malware, the objective, of course, is to steal user credentials and use it to transfer money to their own account(s). For the good folks at FireEye, the objective is to keep an eye out for malware’s of this sort and sound an alarm. And that’s exactly what they have done with KorBanker, dissection it and making the result of their investigation available here. It’s a good read and a malware to keep an eye on, even if you are not in Korea. How long will it take to spread to other countries?
