ESET Safer Kids Online Platform Launched in India

Published

on

ESET launches its Safer Kids Online platform – a resource site dedicated to building a safer online environment for children in India. The website offers resources – in the form of videos, articles and expert insight – for children, parents and teachers with the aim to enable children to enjoy the full potential of the internet in a secure digital world.

Protecting Kids Online

As a result of the shift to digitalisation that has been accelerated by the pandemic, children today can access digital devices and online platforms for various activities, ranging from online learning and video streaming to online games and social media. However, this also puts them at greater risk of encountering online threats. Against this backdrop, it is critical to provide children with guidance, and equip them with the essential skills to remain safe while navigating in an online environment. 

According to the ESET APAC Consumer Cybersecurity Survey 2021, 94% of parents in India take various actions such as using parental control applications, checking internet browser history and limiting screen time to ensure that their children are safe from online threats. Despite the actions taken, 21% of Indian parents said their children had been exposed to inappropriate content online. In addition, 78% of them have not spoken to their children about cybersecurity.

“Cybersecurity can be a relatively new concept for some parents, as it was not taught in schools in the past. The Safer Kids Online initiative aims to empower parents, teachers and children in India to learn more about cyber wellness and how kids can stay safe online by providing free resources and materials. These materials – which are jointly developed by ESET’s cybersecurity experts and child psychologists – are designed to be fun and engaging for children across all ages. Through this initiative, we hope to play a role in protecting the safety and well-being of children online, and we remain committed to keeping the Internet safe for everyone,” said Parvinder Walia, President of Asia Pacific and Japan, ESET.

Resources for children, parents and teachers

The Safer Kids Online website includes a host of resources suitable for younger children, teenagers and their parents, which have all been developed in consultation with a notable child psychologist and ESET’s cybersecurity experts. The resources will provide guidance and advice for children and adults around how to stay safe online and will be geared around key monthly topics. The topics include how to manage screen time, looking out for signs of cyberbullying and protecting children from online predators. Each of these monthly topics will include targeted resources for different ages such as:

●      A video series for kids aimed at ages 7+

●      Animated comics for older children aged 11+

●      An in-depth explanation in the form of expert articles and vlogs for parents

Quizzes and prize contests will also be available in which parents can win attractive prizes for their children.

The Safer Kids Online site will also provide free software, namely ESET Parental Control for Android, which allows parents to look after their children’s online well-being. ESET Parental Control includes the possibility of controlling inappropriate web content and managing the amount of time kids spend on certain devices, as well as the suitability of the applications they’re using. This allows parents to limit their child’s use of certain sites and receive reports on his or her online activities, hopefully becoming aware of any issues before they become entrenched.

Looking to the future

ESET’s future plans include running child online safety initiatives in regions around the world – from Europe and Asia to the USA and Latin America – in cooperation with its partners and local NGOs. With so many resources at the fingertips of families across the globe, ESET will provide parents and schools everywhere with the tools they need to keep their kids safe online – now and in the future.

The first country running such cooperation is the United Kingdom. ESET UK has come on board as a Gold Partner alongside specialist child safety NGO Internet Matters, providing significant contribution to guide policy and to educate. In 2020, ESET also became an official partner of AFC Bournemouth’s Community Sports Trust, which saw ESET specialists providing support for the club’s Safer Kids Online Internet safety project.

Six Anti-Virus Apps Found on Google Play Store Spreading Malware

Published

on

Check Point Research (CPR) finds six applications on Google’s Play Store that were spreading banking malware by posing as anti-virus solutions. Known as Sharkbot, the malware steals credentials and banking information. During CPR’s investigation, CPR counted over 1,000 unique IP addresses of infected devices, mostly in UK and Italy. However, Google Play Store statistics revealed that the malicious applications were downloaded more than 11,000 times. Sharkbot lures its victims through push notifications and by tricking users into entering credentials in windows that mimic input forms. CPR suspects the threat actors are Russian speaking and warns Android users world-wide to think twice before downloading anti-virus solutions from Play Store.

  • 62% of victims were found to be in Italy; 36% in UK, 2% in other countries
  • Threat actors implemented geo-fencing feature, which ignores device users in China, India, Romania, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus
  • CPR responsibly disclosed findings to Google, who removed the malicious applications

Check Point Research (CPR) discovered six applications spreading banking malware on Google’s Play Store by masquerading as anti-virus solutions. The malware, known as ‘Sharkbot’, steals credentials and banking information of Android users. Sharkbot lures its victims to enter their credentials in windows that mimic credential input forms. When the user enters their credentials in these windows, the compromised data is sent to a malicious server. CPR learned that the malware authors implemented a geo-fencing feature, which ignores device users in China, India, Romania, Russia, Ukraine or Belarus.

Four of the applications came from three developer accounts, Zbynek Adamcik, Adelmio Pagnotto and Bingo Like Inc. When CPR checked the history of these accounts, they saw that two of them were active in the fall of 2021. Some of the applications linked to these accounts were removed from Google Play, but still exist in unofficial markets. This could mean that the actor behind the applications is trying to stay under the radar while still involved in malicious activity.

Victims

CPR was able to collect statistics for one week. During this time, CPR counted over 1,000 IPs of victims. Each day, the number of victims increased by roughly 100. According to Google Play statistics, the six malicious applications spotted by CPR were downloaded over 11,000 times. Most of the victims are in UK and Italy.

Attack Methodology

1.      Incline user to grant accessibility service permissions for application

2.      After that, the malware gains control of a large part of the victim’s device

3.      Threat actors can also send push notifications to victims containing malicious links

Attribution

CPR does not have enough evidence to make an attribution. We can assume that the malware authors speak Russian. Furthermore, the malware will not run its malicious functionality if the device’s locale is in China, India, Romania, Russia, Ukraine or Belarus.

Responsible Disclosure

Immediately after identifying these applications that spread Sharkbot, CPR reported these findings to Google. After examining the apps, Google proceeded to permanently remove these applications on Google Play store. On the same day CPR reported the findings to Google, the NCC group published a separate research about Sharkbot, mentioning one of the malicious apps.

Quote: Alexander Chailytko, Cyber Security, Research & Innovation Manager at Check Point Software:

“We discovered six applications on Google’s Play Store that were spreading Sharkbot malware. This malware steals credentials and banking information. It is obviously very dangerous. Looking at the install count we can assume that the threat actor hit the bulls-eye for their method of malware spread. The threat actor strategically chose a location of applications on Google Play that have users’ trust. What’s also noteworthy here is that the threat actors push messages to victims containing malicious links, which leads to widespread adoption. All in all, the use of push-messages by the threat actors requesting an answer from users is an unusual spreading technique. I think it’s important for all Android users to know that they should think twice before downloading any anti-virus solution from the Play Store. It could be Sharkbot.”

Safety Tips for Android Users

  • Install applications only from trusted and verified publishers.
  • If you see an application from a new publisher, search for analogs from a trusted one.
  • Report to Google any seemingly suspicious applications you encounter.
