You must have used the CamScanner app which is available on Android and iOS.To the ones not familiar with this app, Camscanner scans the photo or image and allows us to attach images and signature to the file. This app has more than 100 million downloads. Recently researchers found malware in versions of popular OCR(Optical Character Recognized). Kaspersky researchers identified as ‘Trojan-Dropper.
According to sources, this particular malware module was previously spotted in some apps and for some, it came preinstalled.
The malware module was spotted only on the Android version of the app and seems like iOS users have this app available on play store.
As the Kaspersky blog notes, CamScanner was a pretty good app that offered notable functionality. It also displayed the ads for generating revenue.However, the Trojan Dropper module found within the app is said to extract and run another malicious module from an encrypted file included in the app’s resources.
