Malwarebytes found _com.setmktdsings.asmitasmkutapp_


Recommended Posts

I have here a Gigaset GS170 that is concerned of the wagd malware (see https://www.android-hilfe.de/forum/gigaset-allgemein.2916/tayase-malware-auf-gigaset-smartphones.974787.html#post-12538242) ... there is com.wagd.gem, com.wagd.smarter, com.wagd.xiaoan – and com.redstone.ota.ui is also installed (seems to have been installed by the manufacturer and have been on the device from the beginning).

 

I installed malwarebytes app that found _com.setmktdsings.asmitasmkutapp_ ... what is that??? It was not displayed when last listed installed apps by adb platform-tools.

Hi @Kukkatto,

I posted a blog on how to resolve yesterday: https://blog.malwarebytes.com/android/2021/04/pre-installed-auto-installer-threat-found-on-android-mobile-devices-in-germany/

We have com.setmktdsings.asmitasmkutapp classified as Android/PUP.Riskware.HiddenAds.mktds.  HiddenAds will pop up annoying ads in browser and other locations.

OK; now I see that this must be the wagd stuff ... just now I could see that _com.setmktdsings.asmitasmkutapp_ appears as _AppSettings_ ... I wonder that the cryptic name never was mentioned before ...
