Do you have a so-called cracked APP on your phone?

The risks hidden behind it were also revealed in the CCTV 315 Gala tonight.

CCTV pointed out that the cracked version of the App in question is like installing "surveillance" on the mobile phone and planting "landmines", which is extremely risky.

Specifically, 315 Information Security Laboratory technicians conducted real-time monitoring on the cracked versions of more than ten commonly used video, music, novels and other applications (the party screen showed Lebo screen, Baidu online disk, Kugou music, seven cats novel, Kuwo music), namely pirated versions, and found a lot of secrets.

A cracked version of a video App was found to be embedded with three additional third-party add-ons, known as SDK packages, that were unrelated to the official version.

Once running, the three additional SDKS can steal personal information from the user's phone, from the hardware address of the Internet, to the device identification number, to the phone card identification number, and even the phone operating system identification number, all the key identification information of the user.

The danger here is that with just two or three of these pieces of information, even if the user changes their phone or phone number, it can accurately target the user, capture and track the user's dynamics in real time, and form a precise portrait of the user, thus pushing a lot of ads and realizing the realization of traffic.

What's more, a hacked version of the music App can listen to users' calls.

It was also revealed that software sent large numbers of data packets to overseas IP addresses, which could be used by overseas telecom fraud groups.

According to the risk data, 5.56 percent of companies engaged in mobile app related businesses have filed lawsuits, 19.31 percent have experienced management problems, and 1.17 percent have suffered administrative penalties.
