The Android emulator from BigNox for Windows and Mac has an install base of 150 million users and is popular among mobile gamers. The targeted payload has so far only been observed at 5 victims in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Sri Lanka.

The attacking group called NightScout uploaded the malware to the official infrastructure () so that it was downloaded when someone clicked the “update now” button at the client. Fortunately, the malicious updates were not digitally signed by the attacker.
The downloaded malware comprised of one of three remote access trojans (RAT), Ghost, Poison Ivy, and a generic backdoor. The attack started back in September 2020.

Acronis Cyber Protect blocks remote access trojans through its behavior-based detection module before they can damage the system.
