Coolpad este o companie despre care probabil nu ati auzit vreodata, ea fiind baza in China si fiind in centrul unui nou scandal care are la baza un backdoor instalat pentru a spiona clientii care i-au cumparat produsele. Conform unei companii de securitate, aproximativ 10 milioane de clienti ar fi afectati de acasta problema, ea demonstrand din nou cat de periculoase sunt smartphone-urile vandute de catre companii necunoscute.

Coolpad is the sixth largest manufacturer of smartphones in the world, and the third largest in China. We recently discovered that the software installed on many of Coolpad’s high-end Android phones includes a backdoor which was installed and operated by Coolpad itself. Today we released a new report (https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/resources/research/cool-reaper.html) detailing the backdoor, which we’ve named “CoolReaper.”
