CamScanner detected as trojan downloader (ESET Mobile)

Recommended Posts

ESET has detected this app : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.intsig.camscanner&hl=en

as a trojan downloader , I've tried to replicate this on another phone , it didn't detect anything , I will try to provide logs later as I don't have them now

The solution provided by mobile security is to remove the application because it's detected as trojan downloader , I tried to download it now and scan it with ESET , ESET detected nothing.

The same problem! I've been using CamScanner for ages, but after the last update (July 2019) Eset detected a trojan in it. I reinstalled CamScanner, but it still contains a trojan.

I am having the same issue, Kaspersky just alerted base.apk under /data/app/ as trojan.

Appears Google Store has another malicious app. Nothing really new since this is a very frequent occurrence.

But the app has million of downloads and is listed as Editor's Choice , you can see in the link of the first post , it's weird..

One phone it was detected as trojan by ESET
Second phone no detection by ESET

Possible redirect to a phishing Google store clone website.

Well, i have automatic updates turned off in play store. Before some days I updated to latest version but Eset and Kaspersky dont detect any trojan. All my family member with camscanner have Kaspersky detected an Trojan, weird. I think google play store removed the trojan from app.
