Re: Nokia 8 Trojan

Nokia told me via the nokia chat support for me not to worry. McAfee just asks me if I've already solved the problem (I think McAfee does not know how to resolve this situation) ... but the red alert continues, I do not know if it's a false positive or a real Trojan

Re: Nokia 8 Trojan

Hello all

Below are the comments from Engineering team:


This is an app market application run by "Aptoide". It has an ability to

install an application silently if rooted device. The market hosts some

official apps distributed on GP illegally.

 Therefore, I marked the app as PUP. The customer can select "Keep" using the

application if the customer can accept the risk
