Adhell 3: False Alarm or Legitimate Trojan?

Recommended Posts

I have been using Adhell 3 for the last 7 months. Today, opening it to take care of a new exception on my Galaxy A8 (2018) running Oreo 8.0 with Samsung Experience level 9.0, it was determined to be a banking Trojan by Malwarebytes. Not sure if it is or not as before today, despite daily scanning by Malwarebytes, it has not triggered an alarm. 

Just to be safe, uninstalled meantime. 

Scan said that file: android/trojan.banker.asacub.cp was detected in the program. Am attaching a screenshot of the initial scan report. Not sure if it was part of a recent update or not that "something" changed the state of this app.

The original download was from this address: https://m.mediafire.com/folder/sb37c6gmhqgbn/AdHell_3

I have used Dr Web to run a full scan after Malwarebytes alerted me to deal with this. It found nothing...

Malwarebytes was installed & functional before downloaded the Adhell program & it hasn't changed to my knowledge from the initial install to the update just day's ago (screenshots provided) of it being safe.

Hi @L_Wolf,

I checked all the latest versions of Adhell 3 from link provided, and nothing was detected.  Any idea what version # you may have had installed?

Hi @L_Wolf,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.  I tracked down the issue and it  has been resolved. It will no longer be detected in future database versions.

Thanks again,

Nathan
