I have contacted through email with the developers of Videoder without answer. So I think they know it and their intentions seem dark to me

Hi @jansen,

The developers aren't necessarily at fault.  It's not uncommon to add an Ad SDK to an app to help create revenue when the app is freeI think BatMobi just started acting aggressively out of the blue.  This would explain why developers are unaware, and why many antimalware vendors don't detect.

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to let everyone know I'm still looking into all the many layers of this issue.  

Just wondering though, are people still having this issue?  It seems that for some it just went dark — suddenly no more ads.

For me it disappeared suddenly about 2 weeks ago with no single issue since then. I never uninstalled Videoder or any other app.

I still have this issue occasionally when apps update. I can't remember exactly the last time it happened though. I want to say it happened a couple days ago. I'll post the next time it happens again.

 If you force close Videoder and you clear cache when you update apps it does not redirect to ads pages

Hello, well i guess the problem is solved now. Or ?

Malwarebytes for mobile, detect, after the last update, malware positions:

Android/PUP.Adware.BatMobi.NC

Five times.

Source was, this https://videoder.de.uptodown.com/android

But the name is diffrent, here the name on the Homepage is Videoder, an what you can download via android device is videoderbeta-1.apk, but in the version 14.2 from/by Rahul Verma . Strange.

Test enviroment, was by me a Samsung Galaxy S3 mini (GT-i8200N), with Android 4.2.2 Os, rooted !

Well, is this problem/infection realy solved now ?

Hi @jansen,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.  This will be detected as Android/Adware.RXDroid in future database versions.

Unfortunately, it's unrelated to the ad issues we have been having here.  BUT, I'm getting a lot closer and hoping to find time to do some work on it soon here.

Hi @Lines, @kirklaz, and anyone else with a Xiaomi Redmi Note 5,

I found two apps preinstalled on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 with BatMobi within the apps.  The apps are:

com.mi.android.globalpersonalassistant | App vault 
com.android.providers.downloads.ui | Downloads

If you are still having issues with Ads in Google PLAY, you can use this method to uninstall for current user (details in link below):

https://forums.malwarebytes.com/topic/216616-removal-instructions-for-adups/

Warning: Make sure to read Restoring apps onto the device (without factory reset) in the rare case you need to revert/restore app.

Use this/these command(s) during step 7 under Uninstalling Adups via ADB command line to remove:

adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.mi.android.globalpersonalassistant
adb shell pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.android.providers.downloads.ui

I had this issue since a month where a full screen Ads from YMGT.xyz shows every time and then. I tried many tools and i deleted all the apps that i recently installed but with no luck..!

Yesterday and during google search for an ultimate fix, i found the below link and it was really the one I am looking for.
After applying all the steps, i was surprised that the app causes the problem is: ai.type keyboard which i had used for years and never suspect about. Now it is almost 72 hours since i deleted it and since then no more annoying Ads.

Note: my device is Galaxy Note 8

hope this helps..

Not sure if anyone else experienced this, but it stopped happening for me around March, even though I never found the culprit.  In June, it started back up again with sites game-news.top and sport-news.icu this time.  It stopped again on its own after 2-3 weeks.
