US Government-Funded Android Phones Come With Pre-Installed Malware

United States government-funded Android phones contain unremovable pre-installed malware, according to a recent report by cybersecurity firm Malwarebytes. The report, which was first published by Malwarebytes researcher Nathan Collier on January 9, alleges that the low-end Android phone UMX U686CL contains two independent pieces of pre-installed malware. According to Collier, this malware leaves the Android phone vulnerable to invasive advertising, as well to the auto-installation of apps without the user’s permission.
