Heise (German publisher of various computer related magazines) has just put up an article about the Chinese Star N9500 Android smartphone coming pre-loaded with a trojan called Uupay.D, that will try to harvest your personal information on the phone and may even try to send costly SMS to premium numbers.

I just checked my shiny new iNew/Alps i7000 with ESET Mobile Security and sure enough, it has the Uupay.A trojan apparently macerating as Google Play service.
