Cant find what malware does

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I just scanned my mobile and it showed 1 Malware.  Trojan/Android.Clicker.NADS.  The icon that malware bytes puts on is a RED MIC, and the caption is OkK Google commands   

I have searched and cannot find what this malware does, can anyone help?

Hi @bornl1,

An Android/Trojan.Clicker "clicks" links in the background in order to gain revenue   Regardless, we are revising our detection and this may no longer be detected in future database versions.  Let us know if it is still being detected after tomorrow.

Um...why?  Seems like this would be something worth protecting against.  And I'd sure like to know from the original poster if it's still being found or not.

Hi @jonzid,

Agreed!  A Trojan.Clicker is definitely something worth detecting!  Looking back at the case, we do definitely still detect Android/Trojan.Clicker.NADS.  We simply made the detection more specific to ensure that we were detecting Clicker.NADS, and not anything else.
