G Data Software Incorporated released their second quarter two thousand fifteen malware report yesterday September first. Their security researchers found pre-installed malware from companies such as Huawei, Lenovo, and Xiaomi. These smartphones running the Google Android smartphone operating system have spyware already installed.
However, these security researchers believe that this spyware is being installed by middlemen and not by the original manufacturers. Around twenty-six model smartphones are infected with malware or spyware. Also, these middle men install spyware to steal user data and run their own advertisements.
Christian Geschkat, a G DATA Mobile Solutions product manager is quoted as saying:
An estimated 2.5 billion people worldwide use a smartphone or tablet to go online. Chatting, surfing and shopping are possible anytime, anywhere thanks to smartphones and tablets. At the same time, the number of mobile malware apps has sharply increased in the past three years.
Over the past year we have seen a significant increase in devices that are equipped with firmware-level spyware and malware out of the box, which can take a wide range of unwanted and unknown actions including accessing the Internet, reading and sending text messages, installing apps, accessing contact lists, obtaining location data and more – all which can do detrimental damage.
G Data mobile solutions software incorporated saw an increase of twenty-five percent from the first quarter of two thousand fifteen when finding pre-installed malware on these smartphones. This company has found as many malware applications in the first two quarters of two thousand fifteen, then almost all of two thousand thirteen. G Data projects that over two million malware applications will be detected for the entire two thousand fifteen calendar year.
You can read G Data mobile solutions software incorporated’s Mobile Malware report for the second quarter of two thousand fifteen. Also, you can download and read this more comprehensive mobile malware report in Adobe Acrobat portable document format .pdf. Finally, you can checkout industry-tested anti-virus software for your Google android device, and some of them are free.
The previous uniform resource locator web page link I provided was to the official Google Play store. It includes the "anti malware" search term. However, as is the case on the Internet, you may want to become cautious of what software you install on your Google Android smartphone.
You may want to investigate any Google Android anti-malware software application first before you install it on your Google Android smartphone. You can perform basic research on the Internet. You can perform a search for the exact Google Android software application you are interested in.
Then you can read reviews and other information before making your decision. If you notice any suspicious activity on your smartphone, it may be infected with malware, spyware, viruses, etc. What you can do is periodically browse through your installed applications. Depending on which Google Android operating system, you can go into the system settings.
You might be able to use a search tool or browse through the entire list of software application programs. This list may include all of the system applications, which may become quite lengthy. Also, the default Google Android system applications will be listed.
For example, the Google Play store smartphone software application is a default program. I do not believe that you can actually remove this application. However, you can monitor your smartphone list of applications to keep an eye out for any suspicious software applications that you did not install.
Even if your Google Android smartphone operating system is locked or you do not have root account access, it can still become infected with malware, spyware, and viruses. Another tip is to check for and install any Google Android operating system and other system updates. Also, checking for and installing any application software updates for legitimate applications you install is another tip.
If you are in a serious quagmire where you have confirmed that your smartphone is malware, spyware, virus infected, then you can perform a factory reset. However, you would want to backup any important data. A factory reset basically restores the Google Android operating system back to when you purchased it.
Hence, the term factory reset. You will lose any software applications installed since you purchased it as well as any data left on the internal storage. It will depend on what brand and model Google Android smartphone you possess.
You could perform an Internet search, for example, "Samsung Galaxy S22 factory reset". Hopefully, this blog post and video provided you some product information to combat malware, spyware, and viruses on your Google Android operating system-based smartphone.
