Anti-virus specialists have been aware of the Android.Xiny Trojan and its derivatives for several years. In addition to the fact that after appearing in a smartphone, he begins to “live his own life”, subordinating a smartphone to it, so removing it seems almost impossible to do.
The other day, Doctor Web published a report in which he spoke in detail about a dangerous trojan. Xiny strikes smartphones with Android 5.1 and older. Thanks to numerous holes, the Trojan quickly gets root-rights and then actively installs adware and malware on the device.
Fortunately, in the new versions of the Android system, the virus’s vital functions are closed, however, about a quarter of Android smartphone owners still use outdated software.
