Android phones coming preloaded with malware


If you’ve purchased an Android smart phone recently, you may be getting more than you bargained for.  Some of the phones are coming preloaded with viruses according to a report by Beta News.

“The Check Point Mobile Threat Prevention has recently detected a severe infection in 38 Android devices, belonging to a large telecommunications company and a multinational technology company. While this is not unusual, one detail of the attacks stands out. In all instances, the malware was not downloaded to the device as a result of the users’ use, it arrived with it,”


The Android system is considered not as secure as Apple’s IOS system. The phones are not coming from the manufacturer with the virus, but it is being installed by a third party.  The malware is not easily removed and requires a reinstallation of the Android OS.

List of phones and the malware found.
