The Red Alert 2.0 Android Trojan first detailed in September last year is currently available for rent on underground forums at $500 per month, Trustwave reports.

It is also capable of stealing information from the infected devices, including SMS messages and contact details, can block calls from banks, and can also keep in touch with bots via Twitter in the event its command and control (C&C) server is taken online.

When they detailed the threat in September last year, SfyLabs’ researchers said the malware included around 60 60 HTML overlays used to steal login credentials, but also revealed that the Trojan’s actor was constantly releasing updates for their malicious program.

A Trustwave report published this week reveals that the malware author is currently advertising the Trojan as targeting nearly 120 banks in Australia, Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Poland, Denmark, Germany, France, Lithuania, India, Italy, Ireland, Japan, New Zeeland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States.
