He can control the phone through text messages and threaten the user

Belgian police have warned smartphone users against 8 common applications, hacked by a dangerous virus, that can access the user’s private information and control his phone, according to Sky News Arabia.

In detail, according to the newspaper “Mirror”, the very harmful “Joker” virus spreads within several applications, and it can control the phone through text messages, which puts many at real risk.

And “Google” deleted the applications affected by “Joker” from its online store, and “Apple” banned applications on its devices, but some people own applications on their devices, especially on Android systems, before they were deleted, which means that the danger threatens them unless they delete the applications.

The Joker virus, which first appeared in 2019, is capable of wreaking havoc on the phones it infects, including installing hidden spyware, and tricking users with calling programs that follow a monthly subscription.

According to researchers at the cybersecurity firm Kwik Hill Security Lab, the Joker virus can access text messages, contacts, and a lot of other personal information on phones.

According to the authorities in Belgium, “This malware was detected in 8 apps from the Google Play store, and although it has been deleted from the App Store, if you have already downloaded it previously, remove it as soon as possible.”

These applications are: “Auxiliary Message”, “Element Scanner”, “FastMagic SMS”, “Free Cam Scanner”, “GoMessages”, “Super Message”, “Great SMS” and “Travel WallPaper”.

The authorities advise downloading apps only from trusted sources such as the Google Play Store, and not clicking on strange links received through messages or any other social media platforms.
