Micromax is still on the high shares in the smartphone market. But, recently users have started to complain about various malware activities in their smartphones. After a sketchy update was rolled out, users started to complain that they were seeing ads in their notification areas or completely new installed apps that they never approved.
ADUP technology added a statement today saying that it has opened an investigation into those claims by users and has promised to pursue legal action as the company denies any involvement in such activities through its services and suggested that these are false acquisition by users.
Many Micromax users have posted snapshots of them getting advertisements on their notification panel and apps that have got installed without their permission.
Here is the statement provided by ADUP:
"We have helped our vendors to release a mass of updates in the past three years. Even so, we have never received any complaints from our customers and end-users for any bad service.
ADUPS will never do any operations unrelated with updates without knowing of our customers and their end-users.
About remotely installing unwanted apps and AD push on Micromax phones, we began at once to investigate the case with Micromax. We have suspected some competitors slandered us behind our back and we will detect the truth by pursuing legal claims. Those guys released network of rumor must be responsible for this event and all losses. We have got the sample device and some snapshots about this event, we will submit another statement about this after we analysis the applications integrated before and trace the system logs."
