Star N9500 smartphone with spyware was a knock-off of a knock-off
What do you call knock-off of a knock-off? While you are still at it let’s quickly give you a hint: The Star N9500 phone with factory-fitted malware.
All through this week, the Internet has been awash with news of the above mentioned smartphone coming preloaded with a Uupay.D trojan that will broadcast your data and texts to random mobile numbers (mostly international numbers).
Many had condemned the phone, but not many knows that the phone is a knock-off’s knock-off, and therefore such things shouldn’t be least expected.
OK let’s come down a bit. The Star N9500 is a clone of the Samsung Galaxy S4. But then someone woke up one morning and decides to clone the Star N9500.
He then bundles his own clone of the clone phone with a trojan horse as a bonus and still sells it as Star N9500. Funny isn’t it?
