VPN Pro got this spyware in the application, to publish the report on their website for more details. VivaVideo is a video editing app, which users can download on Android and iOS.

A VPN Pro report notes that other apps such as VidStatus, Vivacut and Troo published in the Google Play Store. They all have the same URL elements, in addition to having the same API button, but have been published from other developer accounts, although it is alleged that the creators of VivaVideo also behind these programs, recommend users to have them. install them remove ASAP.
