Svpeng — This is a mobile banking Trojan. The discovered version of Zlovred received the functionality of the Keilger: the program is able to record the keystrokes on the device, which allows you to intercept confidential information, say, logins and passwords.

Trojan spreads through harmful websites under the guise of a false flash player. After penetrating the device, SVPENG requests the rights to access to functions for people with disabilities.
