Duplicate installers of the Telegram app are being widely circulated on the Internet. In this, Windows-based ‘Purple Fox’ malware is hidden which compromises the users’ systems. Minerva reported that a large number of malicious installers have been found to distribute the ‘Purple Fox’ rootkit version using the same attack sequence. This malware is either delivered via email or downloaded from phishing websites.

You will be pauped by becoming a folder in the phone

He mentions that the fake Telegram app installer has a compiled AutoIt (a freeware BASIC-like scripting language) script called “Telegram Desktop.exe”. This is the first phase of the attack after which a new folder named “TextInputh” is created and a legitimate Telegram installer and a malicious downloader are removed. The portal explained that malware infects a system through a series of files that work together. 

Do not click on suspicious links

These attacks on devices can run effectively without being detected. Users are advised to download the Telegram app only from legitimate sources like Google Play Store or Apple App Store. They should avoid apps with suspicious links from any other website or APK versions of apps.
