Malware in factory distro?


Recommended Posts

Brand New BLU Products Energy X Plus.  Initial scan shows:

Android/Trojan.Andup.e/system/priv-app/SysCore_AD_OverSea_ad_ibd_001_2015 0212_V7.2.4_001.apk

Nothing else on the phone except factory configuration and Malwarebytes.

Malware?

False Positive?

ROOTED the phone and it works just fine without it.

Hi GeoNez,

Based on the file name for the app it looks like it's some type of wallpaper app. The reason it was flagged is because it contains a library, Syscore, which is capable of downloading additional modules without the users knowledge. It think you removing it should be ok, the OS would be complaining if it were something important.

Regards,

Armando,

Thanks for the prompt response.  I'm not sure what function the app performed, but rooting the phone and removing it has caused no operational problems thus far.  The fact that it could make covert system changes would be reason enough for me to want to dump it (the app if not the phone).

Thanks.
