    Hi members,

    I found an interesting article about a preinstalled malware!

    http://www.securelist.com/en/blog/208213028/Caution_Malware_pre_installed


    How do you think about preinstalled malware with the intention to buy the OpO?

    Please note that only manufacturers which using the Goohi device to preinstall apps are concerned!

    Edit 1
    Malware was found on the Star N9500 device.

    Edit 2
    Malware can be pre-installed into mobile phones by the goohi device
    Some manufacturer use the goohi device to preinstall apps on mobil phones.

    Edit 3 Question to Oneplus!
    @David S. Do Oneplus use the Goohi device to preinstall apps?

    I always knew OPO was just an undercover way of China bugging the world. Be careful folks! :D

    Its absolutely an issue, but having CM11s - an open, community based OS ROM builder is really probably your best chance at avoiding. CM is also very security oriented

    Since this phone runs on CyanogenMod, I highly doubt this would be present on our OPOs :)

    No biggie just change the software to a community build off the XDA if it's true.

    Its OK, CyanogenMod is developed in the USA, so its the NSA who will be snooping on you. Mind you, its built in China so nothing to stop them including something in there to snoop on you as well - let them fight it out
