I wiped the phone today – a full factory reset.
Logged into the Google Play Store using a test account , installed MalwareBytes Anti-Malware , updated the database and performed a scan.
Android/PUP.Riskpay.Excel.lib.kxqp malware was found immediately in the pre-installed 2Accounts app.
I have attempted to contact Haier via Twitter and Facebook but have been ignored so far.
Wonderful customer service!
I have moved this whole sorry tale to a separate domain – https://mppsolar.review/
My audio recording / podcast episode is up at Hacker Public Radio , episode 1528.
In this episode I take a swim along a section of the Charente river near Chatain in the Poitou-Charente region of France.
I start upstream at the bridge and go down as far as the weir , then back.
On the way I describe some of the things I am seeing , I pass some cows and a couple of French fishermen.
Apologies for the audio quality and panting, this was recorded by an old MP3 player cable-tied to a wooly hat.
Out for a walk at sunrise this morning.
