Cron, the Android-based malware, took over a person's phone, allowing thieves to send text messages to the victims' bank and ask for it to transfer an average $140 per victim, according to Russian cybersecurity firm Group-IB.
The virus would then hide any incoming notification from the banks on the infected phones. ■
