Several times I have spoken about the fake Facebook applications that are used to send spam to other users and earn money with surveys, well, from Websense they reveal another face of this business … the sale of kits to create these applications.
By less than $ 50 You can buy the complete kit that creates applications that work in conjunction with CPALead, an advertising platform that pays up to $ 2 each time a survey is answered.
In the following screenshot you can see the summary of its operation:

Part 1 is the main page of the fraudulent application; in part 2 you can see when the permissions are requested to install it; the parts 3 and 4 are the most interesting, the script shows a small window which pretends to be a verification system but in reality they are the CPALead surveys, when users click and complete them scammers make money.
If you ever wondered why there are so many fraudulent applications, this may be the answer, just like the kits that allow you to create Trojans to spy, you do not have to have great knowledge about programming or development, you just have to follow the instructions and wait for the victims 🙂
