Title: Roaming Mantis malware expands its reach

 

Author: ITNews

 

Date: 22 May 2018

 

Abstract: Malware called 'Roaming Mantis' that infects smartphones through wi-fi routers is rapidly spreading across the world after first emerging only a couple of months ago. Through DNS hijacking, the malware uses compromised routers to infect Android smartphones and tablets, redirect iOS devices to a phishing site, and run CoinHive, a cryptomining script, on desktops and computers. Having until now mainly affected users in Japan, Korea, China, India and Bangladesh, Roaming Mantis has added two dozen more languages - including Arabic, Russian, and a host of European languages - to aid its spread, according to Kaspersky Lab.
