I contacted jiayu.de at 30.6., they think it's harmless, but are looking at it - no further info until now.
I then contacted jiayu.es yesterday, but got no answer at all until now.

The latest official software posted on http://www.ejiayu.com/en/News.html is from April. How do we know, that 0609 and so on is really officially from them? Is there another official source?

Answer from Jiayu Official Store Espaņa:

"Hello. We do not know anything about this issue because it is working right at this moment. Please contact to Jiayu China or ejiayu to talk about this issue with them."

EDIT: I then asked for help contacting Jiayu China and got this reply after some days:
"Hi. This rom is made bu Jiayu China not by us. We do not know anything from that,. Try to keep in contact with them because we can do nothinfg to fix it."

Hmm ok thanks.

Strange that nobody knows what might be going on. Is the latest rom maybe bogus?

Anyone got a good rom alternative for my jiayu g4s?

Here are the details:

Zopo also does this: recent official KitKat has the fonts troyan, and it is embedded into Settings!

This is clearly intentionally done.

We, simple people, think we pay less for decent phones, and in fact, phone sellers and manufacturers sell out secrets to 3rd party without asking us.

Latest info: there's a new official kitkat ROM for this phone, and it has exactly the same 2 trojans

I really wonder why this security thread is that short. Is it the wrong place here, or doesn't anyone care? I don't feel secure after deleting those apps and don't want to use such ROM. So I restored the april stock ROM...

From official sources nothing new about this issue.

I received an answer from the German branch (flagship store in germany: url jiayu dot de).
The applications are designed for remote maintenance.
I hope they are right.

Never ever, german store is more or less just a reseller with the same poor customer service than a chinese one, why should they confirm that the company who they earn the money with is distributing malware, this would kill their Business immediately
