“When an application is launched on your phone, the malware queries the application name. If it is a Facebook application, the malware will launch a browser that loads Facebook at the same time. The browser is displayed in the foreground which makes you think that the application launched it. When you enter your credentials into this browser, the malware executes java script to retrieve them. The malware then sends your account information to a server.”

The apps bypass the Google security protocols by allegedly using “packers” that are hidden in the APK in the form of extra DEX files and foreign language such as Arabic, which reduces the readability for people. Additionally, even if Google takes action against the sketchy apps, the fraudsters develop a more robust mechanism to avoid detection and removal.

According to the researchers, these apps had a code that detected which apps were running in the background. If Facebook runs in the background then it will take all the information of Facebook.
