The company refuted allegations of any violations
Based in Miami Blu company specializing in the production of low-cost smartphones on Android, was removed from sales in the online store Amazon.
It happened after experts found that pre-installed in smartphones Blu software collects user personal data and sends them abroad.
Last last week in Las Vegas security conference BlackHat company Kryptowire from Virginia, said that the software of the Chinese company Shanghai Adups Technology is still present in some mobile devices Blu. It can be used for remote access to user data, log calls and to intercept messages.
“Because of the security and privacy of our customers is paramount, all models of Blu phones will not be available for purchase on Amazon.com until the issue is resolved,” the statement reads Amazon.
In turn, Blu last week denied allegations of any violations, saying that it implements a number of programs to ensure the security and confidentiality of customers.
This is not the first case when Blu are excluded from sales in the online store Amazon. In October last year her phone was taken off the market after Kryptowire first discovered the spyware in the smartphone Adups R1 Blu HD, Amazon bestselling and most popular model of the company. Adups then called the installation of software to track “mistake”, then the app is deleted from models R1 HD and Life One X2.
