Cyberespionage Campaign : ZooPark Hunting Middle Eastern

Kaspersky Lab researchers have discovered ZooPark – a sophisticated cyberespionage campaign, which for several years has been targeting users of Android devices based in Middle Eastern countries – mostly in Iran.

Some of the malicious apps are being distributed from news and political websites popular in specific parts of the Middle East, disguised as legitimate apps with names like ‘TelegramGroups’ and ‘Alnaharegypt news’ among others, recognized and relevant to some Middle Eastern countries.

Upon successful infection, the malware provides the attacker with the following abilities:

• Contacts
• Account data
• Call logs and audio recordings of the calls
• Pictures stored on the SD card of device
• GPS location
• SMS messages
• Installed application details, browser data
• Keylogs and clipboard data
• Etc.

Backdoor functionality:
• Silently sending SMS
• Silently making calls
• Execution of shell commands

An additional malicious function targets instant messaging applications, like Telegram, WhatsApp IMO; the web browser (Chrome) and some other applications.

It allows the malware to steal the internal data bases of the attacked apps.
