I'm not concluding that there is no malware, hence the "no malware found yet". I do realize the apps cant or don't pickup everything and we still have yet to see if there is. However like you stated, i recieved it through FOTA. This would suggest that I have adups. Thanks for pointing it out. Very disapointing on ulefone's part

As soon as Ulefone release the new firmware as a download via the website, I'll do my security analysis, remove any malware, including the AdsUp crap and re-build the ROM for everyone to enjoy.

SOPHOS picking up Andr/AutoIns-A in Wireless update and PUA:Adware in Search Service. Ulefone have been aware of search service for months, they replied to my e-mail basically saying yes it was there but they wouldn't use it maliciously. I've been using no root firewall but don't think it's enough though

Edited by AndyBA at 2016-12-2 11:03

After OTA Update (ver.2016.09.14)  "Search service" no longer exists

SOPHOS announces that the "Wireless Update" contains malware,
but it is possible that it was a false report (false positive) and following an update SOPHOS disappear
(as it was a few days ago in the Lookout Security & Antivirus).

Sorry for my bad English
