Malwarebytes found a critical issue in my phone. I run a full scan and the result was that a malware was issued in the application known as VivaVideo. 

I appreciate the help. I tried to research this through the web but basically no information was found. What is this malware about?

Hello,

well the Source is, this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.quvideo.xiaoying&hl=de

I have tested, by may self. This my old Smardphone, called Samsung Galaxy S3 mini Android 4.2.2, GT-I8200N.

But strange for me is the result, scant this Malwarebytes Mobile 3.0, detected and erased i guess.

Please update, Malwarebytes Mobile 3.0 again, and make a new scan again.

What kind for Smartphone you use, and what kind of Android Os?

Hello, again.

I run a second scan by me nothing found. The alleged malware, or false alarm was cleared the first time with me.

That is my experience in this matter.

Please, update, and make a scan again.

Thanks for the update.

I have Samsung s6 and the 3.0 Malwarebytes in my phone. I was just curious of how dangerous this malware is and what is it's main purpose. I have of course removed all the necessary regarding this.

Ok, i am start again.

What exactly is your concern in this matter?

Want to know if this is really malware?

Can that get away or do I have to keep it?

Or you can not eliminate it ?

So you could delete this malware, yes? I do not know what this malware can do. Forget my last posting # 2. Good luck in the digital future. Or presence.

This is not also a clean Source, for Malware free APP. They put everything in there, and will not go further or strictly there where one is provided for download, even there one must be careful what one is installed.

Hi @Jonikt,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.   The rule that is detecting VivaVideo as Trojan.Gabas.a has been in our system since 2014 far before VivaVideo was being triggered by it.  Although it's still unclear why VivaVideo is being triggered as there is no evidence within it's code that it contains the elements used to trigger Trojan.Gabas, we decided to retire this old rule as a precaution.  Future database versions will no longer detect VivaVideo.

Hello, OMG my File, or Malware is a  different than the Tread starter has reported. My malware is different. The name: Trojan.HiddenAds.arki. The exact path name: Android / Trojan.HiddenAds.arki / data / app / com.quvideo.xiaoying-1 / base.apk. Sorry for the confusion. I can now delete the debris. Or what?

Source of my App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.quvideo.xiaoying&hl=de

The Name of the App, is VivaVideo: Free Video Editor.

Can we still clarify this?

Hi MAM,

Thanks for the screenshots.  Very helpful in tracking this down.  This issue has been resolved and will no longer be detected in future database versions.

Thanks again,
