I had the chance to update to ver.2016.09.14 but i had no possibility to backup my user files at that time, so i didn't do it. now it seems that the update is no longer available.

Hi, I am on factory delivered build T875d_GQ3026AF_Power_MM_20161114. Are there any insights on an infection with any of the mentioned trojans? A scan did not deliver any results.

Hi everyone,  I have received system update from 20160718  where Search Service was implemented and showed as Malware to .2016.09.14 and here are my Sophos antywirus results.  No Search Service showed but Update app showed as Malware.  What do you think about that?

so i have the 20160914 update now too. No search service found anymore. But i found that the camera app now needs phone rights. Any reason why my camera needs to call someone? When you disable the right you simply cant start your camera app.
By the way its same behavoir like the integrated google browser has. you cant start it without give it all rights to control data, camera, mic and location rigths. Thats the reason i installed another browser and dont use the build in.

Posted this issue already in '[Discussion] New ulefone power software testing - *26'
No answer/statemant yet.
I still have disabled the phone access, camera app does not work, the camera button is useless...
(I use opencamera instead)

Has there been any input from Ulefone yet? Malware now showing in both Sophos and Malware Bytes, all other antivirus don't seem to pick it up.
