It was built in the system as the system updates. So even forcing stop it would start up again. Malware apps picked it up. Tried rooting the phone so I could remove the system app. But no root would work, done that before on other phones.
I was wary so installed Malwarebytes. It picked it up but couldn't remove it as it was a system file, The Rom on cubot.net also had it built in but once it has activated itself there is no way to remove it. I don't know what it was doing, I read somewhere it was sending data to a google server. Here I think
How did you know you had malware? Did another app report that it found some?
I had a cubot once and sent it back. Had malware that tracked login details for apps etc. like Facebook, email, online banking. It’s what’s put me off buying a Chinese brand that’s not regularly sold in the uk.
What was the malware? Or what did it do, just out of curiosity?
