Hackers Advertising FUD APK Crypter that Runs on all Android Devices

Cybersecurity experts have identified a new tool being promoted in the internet’s darker corners.

Dubbed the “FUD APK Crypter,” this software claims to offer the ability to encrypt and obfuscate payloads created by Android Remote Administration Tools (RATs), making them fully undetectable (FUD) by security systems.

Sophisticated Evasion Techniques

The FUD APK Crypter is advertised as being capable of bypassing Play Protect and even evading Chinese phone protection systems without difficulty.

Malware analysis can be fast and simple. Just let us show you the way to:

  • Interact with malware safely
  • Set up virtual machine in Linux and all Windows OS versions
  • Work in a team
  • Get detailed reports with maximum data
  • If you want to test all these features now with completely free access to the sandbox:


This suggests a high level of sophistication, implying the tool can circumvent some of the most robust security measures currently on Android devices.

The tool has a user-friendly graphical interface, as seen in a screenshot shared on Twitter by the account @MonThreat.

The interface includes options for various encryption methods and the ability to change the payload’s name and icon, making it more deceptive.

Threat to Android Users

This tool poses a significant threat to Android users, as it can work on all devices up to Android 14.

The ease with which it can generate a disguised APK file in mere seconds is alarming, as it lowers the barrier for cybercriminals to execute their malicious activities.

The cybersecurity community is actively monitoring this new threat.

While the advertisement of such tools is not new, the capabilities of the FUD APK Crypter highlight the need for continuous vigilance and the development of more advanced security measures to protect users from these evolving threats.

Protecting Yourself

Users are advised to keep their devices updated with the latest security patches, avoid downloading apps from untrusted sources, and use reputable security software to safeguard against such threats.

For more information on the FUD APK Crypter and how to protect yourself from similar threats, users can refer to trusted cybersecurity resources and stay informed about the latest developments in the field.

Live API Attack Simulation

94% of organizations experience security problems in production APIs, and one in five suffers a data breach. As a result, cyber-attacks on APIs increased from 35% in 2022 to 46% in 2023, and this trend continues to rise.
Key takeaways include:

  • An exploit of OWASP API Top 10 vulnerability
  • A brute force ATO (Account Takeover) attack on API
  • A DDoS attack on an API
  • Positive security model automation to prevent API attacks
