File is a trojan and can take control of my Nokia 6.1.
Please confirm Nokia....!!!!
McAfee reports the file as a Trojan. I have completely hard reset without restoring old data. Still the file some how appears as a Virus definition. Is it a system file or what. I heard the same file is appearing in other variants of Nokia like Nokia 8. What to do now.?
It's a false positive. So, no worries.
Problem: virus (malware) in OTA firmware Nokia 6.1 (Android 8.0).
Quick response: ID3os.apk is not a virus, it is an alternative application store. There is no threat.
My smartphone is Nokia 6.1 (TA-1043) with Android 8.1.0 (00WW_2_22E_SP02). I want to give here information on this problem, which took half a day. Perhaps it will help someone to stop worrying))
Dr.Web Space Security detected the virus: Android.HiddenAds.256
Link to the forum (URL is here) where the specialist from Dr.Web also confirmed that it is a virus. Everything is bad! Or not?
What I've done?
1. I returned the device to the factory firmware.
2. Сhecked device with other effective antiviruses that did not reveal any problems:
Kaspersky Mobile Antivirus: AppLock & Web Security
Norton Security & Antivirus
Bitdefender Mobile Security & Antivirus
Comodo Mobile Security
ESET Mobile Security & Antivirus
Avast Antivirus 2018
AhnLab V3 Mobile Security
G DATA Internet Security Light
Avira Antivirus Security
McAfee Mobile Security
