Yesterday AVG antivirus PRO detected malware in ‘VoiceCommand’ on my FP1, Koala Nut 1.8.7. It also said it could not remove the offending app since it was ‘pre-installed by the phone manufacturer’. Further investigation led to http://www.avgthreatlabs.com/us-en/android-app-reports/app/com.mediatek.voicecommand/ , where it claims it is active malware since 3 days. No reports I could find from others having the same warning.
Note I did not recently install any new apps, and when I do, I only install them from the official google play store.
Should I be concerned? After the first scare I thought maybe not since it seems an app that has been on my phone since I bought it and this could therefore be a false alarm.
Any help or advice would be much appreciated!
