"The applications have been injected with CPU mining code that they have received from legitimate mining applications for Android. It is the code used in the well-known cpuminer software ", the blog post states.

When installed on the device, malicious software starts working in the background as soon as it detects an internet connection. It is designed to begin mining with the CPU of the device and connects to a dynamic domain that redirects to an anonymous Dogecoin mining pool.
