Triada is a modular mobile Trojan that actively uses root privileges to substitute system files and uses several clever methods to become almost invisible – Kaspersky Labs.  The Malware’s proper name is Android.Triada.231. It is classified as Trojan. It was first detected in December 2017 on a Leagoo M9 Android Smartphone. Further research revealed that the Trojan was embedded into the system code by oversight of the Leagoo Company. This was done by a third party software vendor who supplied the Trojan to Leagoo by asking if they could preinstall it in their phones. The Trojan has since been replicating itself and self-installing on many android devices. Follow details of this malware here.
