Hello all,

A month ago I purchased Bluboo Maya and after installing Malwarebytes on the phone, the scans showed two infected system files.

1) Android/Trojan.HiddenApp.ck in /system/priv-app/KST_LTX_SCweather/KST_LTX_SCweather.apk

2) Android/PUP.Adware.Yemobi.a in /system/app/AdupsFota/AdupsFota.apk

As these are system files, they cannot be removed. I contacted the seller and they promise they have not installed anything malicious.

Is there a chance these are false positives?

If they are not, is it safe to just block them or do I need to remove them?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Ellahood,

Glad you found a solution!  Unfortunately, preinstalled malware on some phone manufacturers is becoming more of an issue -> Mobile Menace Monday: Preinstalled adware and sometimes worse

McStan, my guess is that he went the route of rooting his device and/or re-imaged the phone with another ROM.  This is a risky task as it could "brick" the phone, but if your willing to the take that risk on yourself it could be an option.  The only other method would be to disable the apps, which is explained in the linked blog post above.
