Malware Found Preinstalled on Dozens of Android Phones

By John P. Mello Jr.

Malware has been discovered preinstalled on 36 Android phones belonging to two companies, security software maker Check Point reported. “In all instances, the malware was not downloaded to the device as a result of the users’ use — it arrived with it,” noted Oren Koriat, a member of Check Point’s Mobile Research Team. The malicious apps on the phones of a telecommunications company and a multinational technology business were not part of the official ROM supplied by the vendor, he explained. They were added somewhere along the supply chain.
