A new version of android malware is DVMAP which uses a new technique to infect android smartphones. Dvmap is a very special rooting malware, It uses a variety of new techniques, but the most interesting thing is that it injects malicious code into the system libraries. Hence, it is the first Android malware that injects malicious code into the system libraries in runtime.

The Trojan has been downloaded from Google's Playstore over 50,000 times since March 2017 and is a particularly dangerous form of malware because it can inject code into the system library and remove root-detection features designed to detect malicious intrusions.

Detected by cybersecurity researchers at Kaspersky Lab, the Dvmap trojan is not only capable of obtaining root access rights (root is the user name or account that by default has access to all commands and files on a Linux or other Unix-like operating system. It is also referred to as the root account, root user and the superuser) on Android devices but has the ability to monitor information and install other applications.

Dvmap cloaked itself as a game called 'colourblock' within Google Play which managed to bypass the store's security checks by first of all uploaded a clean version of the app in March. Shortly afterwards, they updated it to a malicious version for a short time before reverting it back to the clean version. Researchers say they did at least five times in the space of four weeks, successfully tricking Google Play in the process.
