What is Joker Malware?

Joker is a Malaysian bot that is capable of downloading new malware on the user's phone. Once loaded into the phone, it automatically clicks on a variety of premium subscriptions from the mobile number of malware users. The important thing is that the user has no information about it. It uses very short and secret code, which makes it very difficult to find the Joker.

Subscribe to paid services

The job of this malware is to fake clicks on SMS, allowing it to subscribe to the user's account for unpaid premium payments. The user has no information about it. This adware is designed to steal SMS messages, contact lists, and phone information.
