The Trojan, with 12 domains, are being installed, manipulating the users on the Internet.
Security researchers say this advanced Trojan infected millions of android users. When a mobile is infected with the HUMMER Trojan it will root the phone, managing to attain administrator status on the infected phone. This allows installation of many apps, games and pop-up ads, without the user’s permission. This Trojan developer makes 0.50 $ every time the Trojan installs the virus.
