Interesting article here on Wi-Fi control center and RottenSys malware on some Android phones, not sure how much of it is true yet, as the software seems to have appeared on phones sold through a Chinese supply chain distributor called Tian Pai.

 

Here for reference:

A little more here on what key system apps to look for on your phone to determne if you might be carrying the malware:

Made in 6 countries apparently.. Vietnam, China, India, Brazil, Indonesia, and Korea.

 

And it’s not so much where it’s made, but the fact that such a respected brand as Samsung are not onto this sooner.. they have the resources, the other companies not so much!
