Too Long; Didn't Read

Malware is of particular interest in how it implements no such functionality that can be readily detected by security products. The apps named DEFENSOR ID and Defensor Digital rely mainly on Android's Accessibility Service to conduct malicious activities, and go undetected. The app can capture credentials entered by the user on mobile banking apps, read or generate SMS messages, read emails, read Two-Factor Authentication codes generated by authenticator apps, steal cryptocurrency private keys and upload all of this vital information to an attacker-controlled server.
