Malicious “RedAlert – Rocket Alerts” Application Targets Israeli Phone Calls, SMS, and User Information

On October 13, 2023, Cloudflare’s Cloudforce One Threat Operations Team became aware of a website hosting a Google Android Application (APK) impersonating the legitimate RedAlert – Rocket Alerts application (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.red.alert&hl=en&pli=1).  More than 5,000 rockets have been launched into Israel since the attacks from Hamas began on October 7th 2023.  RedAlert – Rocket Alerts developed by Elad Nava allows individuals to receive timely and precise alerts about incoming airstrikes. Many people living in Israel rely on these alerts to seek safety – a service which has become increasingly important given the newest escalations in the region.

Applications alerting of incoming airstrikes have become targets as only days ago, Pro-Palestinian hacktivist group AnonGhost exploited a vulnerability in another application, “Red Alert: Israel” by Kobi Snir.
