But in practice, what does this Autolycos malware do? Their specialty is forcing users to subscribe to premium services that are paid for. According to Microsoft, which analyzed it, this malware is one of the most frequent threats on Google’s Android operating system.

Generally, Autolycos uses infected computers to link to payment pages for premium services that require payment and force the user to subscribe and, consequently, pay for those same services.
Autolycos malware emerges after Android users were confronted with the feared banking malware Revive and BRATA.
