  • 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).

    Date: 2018-09-06

    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

    /system/CDA/items/ID3os/ID3os.apk

    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

    F-Secure SAFE

    G DATA Internet Security Light

    Tencent WeSecure

    Avira Antivirus Security

    AVG Antivirus

    McAfee Mobile Security

    In general, everything is fine. There is nothing to worry about.
