What are Rogue Apps ?

Rogue applications are forgeries of legitimate apps that are developed to look like the originals. The rogue apps are designed by cybercriminals to collect confidential information from users who think they are entering data into trusted applications from a well-known brand. They’re similar to phishing emails, but they’re more misleading because they look and sound like legitimate apps. Few of distribution mechanism are 

  1. Main-stream application stores like Google Play, Apple Store etc.
  2. 3rd party unsanctioned app stores 
  3. Filehosting and sharing sites 
  4. Forums and Blogs

Damage to your brand

The attackers go to all lengths of using the logo, brand color, images, hotlinks of web resources of your brand to make them look as similar as possible. It is really hard for a normal user to differentiate between the legit application and the rogue application, which makes them an easy prey for the cyber hunters.

  • Reputation Damage :  When scammer’s  scam people using your brand name, people might avoid using your brand, post reviews etc. which damages trust in your brand. Eg: e-commerce scamming
     
  • Financial Damage : It’s common for malicious apps to steal sensitive information (one-time passwords, credit card details, etc.) or financial resources that may otherwise benefit your business.
