Low-end smartphones sold to Americans with low-income via a government-subsidized program contain unremovable malware, security firm Malware bytes said today in a report.
The smartphone model is Unimax (UMX) U686CL, a low-end Android-based smartphone made in China and sold by Assurance Wireless, a cell phone service provider part of the Virgin Mobile group.
The telco sells cell phones part of Lifeline, a government program that subsidizes phone service for low-income Americans.
For starters, Malwarebytes said it found that one of the phone's components, an app named Wireless Update, contained the Adups malware.
The Adups malware was discovered in 2017 by Kryptowire, and it's a malicious firmware component created by a Chinese company of the same name.

China's embassy in Denmark called the cartoon "an insult to China" that "hurts the feelings of the Chinese people".
The embassy said the cartoon crossed the "ethical boundary of free speech" and demanded that the paper and cartoonist
Niels Bo Bojesen "reproach themselves for their mistake and publicly apologise to the Chinese people".
Jyllands-Postens ansvarshavende chefredaktør, Jacob Nybroe, understreger, at det aldrig har været intentionen med tegningen at støde nogen.

Campaigners have officially ended a crowdfunding appeal which was raising money to make Big Ben's bell ring to mark Brexit day.
The StandUp4Brexit group says the £272,000 raised will instead go to veterans' charity Help for Heroes.
They say efforts to persuade House of Commons authorities to accept the donation have been "unsuccessful".
Big Ben is being renovated and the total cost of getting the bell working by Friday had been put at £500,000.
Why it will cost an astonishing £500,000 for Big Ben to ring on Brexit night
BIG Ben will NOT ring in Britain’s Brexit – unless a crowdfunding idea hinted at by Boris Johnson captures the imagination of the public – because of a shocking HALF MILLION POUND bill.
