@Blake: Do you have any technical insights you want to share with us? Do you work for Vernee?

@All:

I can confirm, that the latest OTA updated FOTA to version 5.5.0.3.004 (see attached Screenshots). As someone else has written in another thread, this COULD mean that there is no more data leakage (see Adups Press Article). I don′t believe it.

Adups still connects to 118.193.254.13 (fota5.adups.com) on a regular basis. I guess this is some kind of Update Check, but, while the App itself seems to send no data, still a lot of traffic is generated (again, see Screenshots). I have no idea what is sent nor how to stop it.

I′m still worried about my Data. And i still demand an official(!) Statement, that all my data on the Vernee Thor is SAFE (regarding not only Adups)!

Please support this call for transparence!

I do not understand, why Vernee is not able to give some information on the current status of their data protection on Vernee Thor.

I will not buy a second time at a company that continuously ignores requests from customers. Quite a pity, Vernee sounded so promising.

*UPDATE*

Even well-respected Security-Apps detect FOTA (German: "Systemaktualisierung") as harmful App. See attached Screenshot.

Even updated adups version is collecting and sending data and can even used for remote takeover.
Is it possible to remove this software manually and also remove in future updates?

Amazon is already pulling out Blu phones from their marketplace which also having adups installed.
