A new Android Remote Administration Trojan (RAT) named Rogue is for sale on underground forums for as little as $29.99. The RAT is a combination of two older malware types and gives hackers full control of infected Android devices. Rogue can be installed by several different methods; it is usually done so through phishing or a malicious app. After being downloaded on a smartphone, Rogue will repeatedly ask for device administrator permissions—once the permissions are granted, hackers can remotely access the device. Once Rogue is embedded, the threat actor has access to GPS location, can take screenshots, use the camera, record audio from calls and more.
