Hi Joelito,

RootClient.apk is indeed Android/PUP.Adware.Gmobi.  It’s a Potentially Unwanted App that has aggressive adware.  It’s more annoying than dangerous so don’t be too concerned.

As for OLX_Helper_Micromax_v2.5.apk being detected as Android/Trojan.Spy.SmsThief.de, I need more information to help find the right app being detected.  If you could help me out, that would be great.  This what I need you to do:
1)    Install the VirusTotal app from the Google Play store -> https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.virustotal&hl=en
2)    Run the VirusTotal app
3)    Find OLX_Helper_Micromax_v2.5 in the list of apps and click on it to get to the scan results page
4)    On the results page there will be a link that says “Click here to view full information on VirusTotal website”, click this and open up the results in a browser
5)    Copy the URL from the browser and post it here (keep in mind the URL will most likely be broken)


Once I have this information I can track down the app and do more research.

Thanks!
Nathan
