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.
This program ist known here since 2013/08.
Kaspersky lab wrote in march about this problem - but it was not interesting enought.
Now, the german crew from GData saw this app (it is only a PUP - not a trojan or virus) and they make money with there own anti virus app.
Go to settings --> Apps --> scroll to all apps --> deactivate (or remmove all apps if your phone is rooted.)
You are able to scann all apps on your phone if you pull all apps to your PC (adb pull /system/app and if you run KitKat adb pull /system/priv-app)
Remember: In the eyes of anti virus crews are all rooting apps also malicous apps!
