I did a scan an I have 36 infections of malware, all the same: pup.risktool.callpay.lo 

I googled it but couldn't find anything about it. Here some screenshots: it's literally in every app! 

What is it and should I press remove malware?Screenshot_20200815-020412.thumb.png.cd7c8acc3ef439be59cb877a6a67bb22.png

Thanks for addressing this so quickly. I had to uninstall Malwarebytes for now, because it was giving me a popup every few seconds.

Just for confirmation, I ran Bitdefender (free) and it found no threats.

Will look forward to the update. Thanks.

I'm glad to see a quick response on this one. I created a forum account specifically to question this, as my daily scan just came back with 117 results of this exact problem. Last night's scan was all clean, so it was mildly concerning.

I have the very same issue. Coming from a tech graduate and I tend to stay clean, this false positive scared me. I had 91 apps triggered. Even Netflix.

Omg yes. I think it's funny that the technological side of the world just immediately congregates on a forum. It made me really panic when I could not find anything on Google.

I was watching a movie and then I see a notification saying "190 malware detected" and I'm questioning my sanity for a bit there 🤪

Very likely an error somewhere. Hang tight and wait for the fix. Just be grateful we ALL have the issue.

Ditto! This just happened to me as well. I was watching Netflix and a notification popped up saying Malwarebytes found 43 threats! Say whay?! I looked and they all have the same thing "Android/PUP.Risktool.CallPay.lo" and it's everything! Google Play Store, Google Services for AR, YouTube, Uber, Uber Eats, Google, OneDrive, MyPhone, Messages, Netflix, etc, etc... My phone is a Nokia 7.2 and I have Malwarebytes Premium.
