Lenovo P1m (P1ma40) - Permanent Malware com.google.camera.fun.apk?

2016-05-13, 7:09 AM

Hi,

2 days after I got my P1ma40 phone (Thailand TRUE) I have been inundated with spam/porn etc.

 

The only programs I installed on my phone was Whatsapp, Line and Lookout (anti virus).

 

Then all of a sudden more and more popups and auto downloads.

 

I have now installed Kasperksy's and Malwarebytes and they show that malware is

/system/priv-app/com.google.camera.fun.apk - which cannot be removed or deleted.

 

Please can you confirm this is a FALSE positive or is this actual Malware?

regards

Re: Permanent Malware on new Lenovo?

Hi,

I already faced the same problem in previous handset. (Samsung Galaxy S4). I asked the Developers about this problem and they suggested to Phone Reset. after reset phone the problem was solved. 
I think, This problem (malware) is not permanent. you can reset your phone. may be problem solve out.

Welcome to the forums Brit90!

 

Please check if there is OTA update in Settings-> About phone->System update and if there is any please install it and run the security scan again.

 

Regards,

Hi,

I have done a full factory reset and as soon as I start to enter my details into the phone it starts to download .APKs

This now shows that MALWARE is inside the phone from Factory.

 

Please can you advise me as what to do now.

 

regards

Scott

PORN on my Lenovo P1m (P1ma40)

2016-06-10, 5:34 AM

I made a post before https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/P-Series-Smartphones/Lenovo-P1m-P1ma40-Permanent-Malware-com-google-camera-fun-apk/m-p/3326812/highlight/false#M9659

Saying how com.google.camera.fun is already infected in the phone from turning it on.

 

Now all I get is constant PORN - and guess what - I haven't even used the phone.

I have left it switched on - to see what happens - and the only 2 items installed are

Malwarebytes and Kaspersky.

 

I want you Lenovo to analise this phone and tell me why from Manufacture it has Malware injected into it.

 

Mod's Edit:  Merged this post in with existing discussion.  Please do not start multiple threads on same issue as this only splinters the discussion. Instead, keep your current discussion updated with any additional information. Thanks !

@intanon and Brit90,

Thank you for bringing this up to us. Let me contact the R&D team on this. As I do not have a TRUE Telco version of this phone therefore I am unable to test further. Will get back to you as soon as possible.
