Firmware update detected as Andr/Xgen2-P by Sophos
« on: June 06, 2018, 10:56:23 am »
Installed Sophos after loading x27 non-rooted, ‘Firmware update’ detected as threat/pua Andr/Xgen2-P.  No details from Sophos other than signatures.

Not detected by Kaspersky or AVG, could be a false positive, but worth further investigation.

Appears to be known APT based on Sophos.

Probably AdUps firmware updater - has a history of harvesting data and has been previously seen on other MediaTek devices.
