Android Devices Infected w/ Malware in the Supply-Chain is a VERY Big Deal (

Security vendor Checkpoint reviewed new devices and found that malware was already present on 38 Android devices owned by a telecommunications company and a multinational technology company ... before the users received them.

That even SOME android phone and tablets have had their operating system image altered between factory and customer is a REALLY bad problem for the vendors involved.

This latest round of pre-infected devices included some with a malware known as loki – a spyware tool; and Slocker, a mobile ransomware. These are not minor incidents, no matter how contained they are. Supply-chain Android malware infection is a VERY big deal.

Here are the affected devices:

Galaxy A5
Galaxy Note 2
Galaxy S7
Galaxy S4
Galaxy Note 4
Galaxy Note 5
Galaxy Note 8
Xiaomi Mi 4i
ZTE x500
Galaxy Note 3
Galaxy Note Edge
Galaxy Tab S2
Galaxy Tab 2
Oppo N3
vivo X6 plus
Nexus 5
Nexus 5X
Asus Zenfone 2

Xiaomi Redmi
Lenovo A850

Orwellian TV's have arrived.
Privacy Warning!
Samsung TV sets 'listen' to every conversation held in front of them and may share any details they hear with Samsung or third parties. Privacy campaigners said Samsung technology smacked of telescreens, in George Orwell's 1984, which spied on citizens.
