Tab P11 pro Smart Play PUA

2021-05-01, 17:36 PM

Hello, after firing it up and installing ESET mobile, ESET immediately detected

Smart Play ( Android/Packed.Jiagu.D (variant), path /product/priv-app/SmartInnovation/SmartInnovation.apk )

as a potentially unsafe application.

As it can't be uninstalled, ESET suggest disable / force stop which I have tried to do.

Both buttons are grayed out.. is it disabled and stopped?I

I can't seem to get ESET to ignore it. I am in discussions with ESET.

 

Is this Smart Play a Lenovo preinstalled thing?

 

TIA.

Hello,

 

The Android/Packed.Jiagu.D detection is of a "packer," a program that compresses executable files in order to make them a little smaller or prevent their behavior from being analyzed.  According to this conversation on Twitter from one of ESET's Android malware researchers, Jiagu is a packer that they have seen used (abused?) by malicious Android apps, which is why they added detection for the packer itself. 

 

As for the potentially unsafe application classification, that is ESET's classification for software that is commercial and legitimate, but contains functionality that could be abused.  Although it's a bit old, ESET does have a white paper on potentially unwanted and potentially unsafe applications here.  The discussion of potentially unsafe applications starts around at page 7 of the document.

 

Regards,
