Last March, we reported on Operation C-Major, an active information theft campaign that was able to steal sensitive information from high profile targets in India. The campaign was able to steal large amounts of data despite using relatively simple malware because it used clever social engineering tactics against its targets. In this post, we will focus on the mobile part of their operation and discuss in detail several Android and BlackBerry apps they are using. Based on our investigation, the actors behind Operation C-Major were able to keep their Android malware on Google Play for months and they advertised their apps on Facebook pages which have thousands of likes from high profile targets.
