londonbusinessblog.com launched today a spyware lookup tool that allows anyone to check if their Android device has been compromised by a range of consumer spyware apps, including TheTruthSpy. Its purpose is to help victims verify if their device has been compromised and regain control of their device.

It follows a months-long investigation by londonbusinessblog.com into the fleet of spyware apps that share the same server infrastructure, but also the same security flaw, all of which expose the personal phone information of hundreds of thousands of Android users.

SPYWARE SEARCH TOOL

You can check if your Android phone or tablet has been hacked here.

These stealthy apps are often installed stealthily by someone with physical access to a person’s device and are designed to remain hidden from home screens but allow that person to view the victim’s phone data in real time, including their calls, messages. , contacts, real-time location data, photos and more.

Our investigation found that the spyware apps were built and maintained by a Vietnam-based group of developers who went to great lengths to hide their involvement in the operation, including using false names and obscured identities. But without a fix, londonbusinessblog.com can’t reveal more about the security flaw because of the risk it poses to the hundreds of thousands of victims whose phones were unknowingly compromised by the fleet of spyware apps.

Then, in June, a source provided londonbusinessblog.com with a cache of files dumped from the servers of TheTruthSpy’s internal network. That cache of files contained a list of every Android device that had been compromised by one of the spyware apps on TheTruthSpy’s network until April 2022, which is presumably when the data was dumped.

The leaked list does not contain enough information for londonbusinessblog.com to identify or notify owners of compromised devices. That’s why londonbusinessblog.com built this spyware lookup tool. The tool allows anyone to check for themselves if their Android device has been hacked by these apps and how to remove the spyware – if it is safe to do so.

The tool works by matching the leaked list of unique device identifiers, such as IMEI numbers and advertising IDs, which are often collected by apps on your device and sent back to the developer, and these spyware apps are no different.

londonbusinessblog.com verified the leaked list by matching known identifiers, such as IMEIs, of burner and virtual devices we used during our investigation of the spyware network.

You can use the tool for free here and learn more about our research that first discovered the spyware network.


If you or someone you know needs help, the National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233) provides 24/7 toll-free, confidential support to victims of domestic violence and violence. If you are in an emergency, call 911. The Coalition Against Stalkerware also has resources if you think your phone has been compromised by spyware.
