"Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

Dear Sirs There are some weeks,every one of my antiviruses such as "CM Security","Lookout","AVG","Avast" and Norton Security announces(not simultanious but one by one) that two programs :"MonkeyTest " and "TimeService" are malwares and then they want I uninstall them. Then I uninstall them.after that ,this antivirus announce that it is safe to open "Monkey Test "or "Time service "!.after that first step repeats. These two programs install automatically,not by myself.I think main part of this virus is hidden in my cellphone .How can I prevent it from installing automatically?is there any knowledge base about this viruses?any remover? My Cellphone is Huawei honor 3C HU-30 and its Andoid is 4.2.2 Please help me to solve this problem. Thanks

Hi kazux.

I do not know anything about any "Monkey Test" or "Time service" malware on Android.  Are you sure that you have un-installed them (i.e. have you checked immediately after the un-install)?

Have you also made sure that in your security setting that you have disabled "Unknown sources".  With that disabled it should only be possible to load new app from Google Play.

Finally, just out of interest, does your phone run slow at all?  I can't help but wonder if running 4 anti malware apps at the same time might have a performance impact.

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

Hi dears Thanks for your support.Your first question is I am sure the monkeytest or timeservice has been uninstalled because after uninstall ation of each one another antivirus says monkey test or time service is malware and when it wants uninstall it ,it doesn't find in program list.I checked program list and didn't see monkey test but there is 2 process of timeservice. I think timeservice is one of android programs and maybe monkey test is also be the same and android os eeds them.because antiviruses says that it is safe to open. I think after reinstallation of them a malware (malwares) infected them and antivirus identify it as malware. Your second question is ok unknown resources is disabled. Your last question is positive.Now my first priority is to remove this virus.after removing the virus I uninstall unneeded antivirus. I used to scan my computer by norton about 23 years ago.in DOS 3.3 up to now , I use dr.Solomon and cpav.exe I think the quality of my attached pdf is no good.

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

Hello again kazux.

If you have got malware on your phone then I have to tell you that this is NOT a malware removal site and I have no expertise at that.  The aim of this forum is to help users of Norton Mobile Security (NMS) in the use of that product.  

If you are using NMS and it thinks that Monkey Test or any other app is malware then it tells you before it is installed or as you install it so that it can be immediately un-installed.  If during a scan it finds something already on the device it will warn you and suggest that you un-install, as it appears to have done in your case.

If you un-install the app and disable "Unknown sources" then I can't see how the app can get back.  But as I say I am not a malware expert.  You may want to check "Device Administrators" in the Security settings of your phone and see if any unexpected app has powers there that you do not think it should have.  If it does clear its tick box when you next un-install the problem apps and that should prevent anything other than you bringing them back.

If you wish I can give you links to some well known malware removal sites but they normally focus on PC type problems and I have no idea if they remove malware from Android devices.

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

I had the exact same problem. 360 mobile security from google play store solved it for me. It is free to use. Follow instructions. After a few installs it will give a disable and force stop repair mode and then you are rid of this

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

Hi syravi.

Welcome to the Norton Community Forums.

Could you confirm the exact title of the app you are referring to as I can see no app called "360 mobile security" on Google Play.  The name of the author might also be helpful in identifying it.

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

I also installed 360 mobile safe,but I am still unsuccessful Thanks for your help

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

I need some times to tell you my cellphone has cleaned or not.the last time I saw malwares was this morning.

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

So maybe there is another installer that is running. So here is what you need to do. Download Gemini App Manager  from Play store.

Install and run

Find times

Locate Time Service App and Monkey Test

Long press by keeping your finger on it

Go to More Options

Choose Block App Root

Another program you can use is the Titanium Backup Pro version

From there select Time Service and Monkey Test

And Freeze them

They wont trouble you again

To get the pro version mail me your email address at:

syravi at the rate yahoo dot com

I will send you the pro version

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

Dear syravi It seems to be an efficient procedure.But after a few days ,I 'll be sure that my Cellphone has been cleaned or not.Maybe combination of "360 Security " and "360mobile safe", solved my problem.Thanks for your help.

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

I already investigate this kind of unwanted apps. This like a worm that can't delete easily you need to reformat your phone or flash old stock rom. If you have back up before that this uneccesary apps appear just restore your backup. For more info read more about monkeytest and timeservice here http:// www. androidcribs.com/2015/06/tuthow-to-remove-for-monkeytest-and.html

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

Nothing work 4 time service Don't think any anti can get it

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

Yes, on restart the malware reinstalls itself. This is how I finally got rid of it:

I installed Titanium Backup Pro

I ran the program

Searched Monkey Test and Time Services and Cobo Launcher & We Call as these were installing with this malware

I used Freeze option to freeze all this applications. Do not uninstall these programs as they will come again

Now even if your antivirus shows  them as Malware and asks you to uninstall them, dont uninstall. Just let them remain 'Freezed'

Now when you restart your phone, the malware remains disabled in the Apps list and does no mischief.

To get Titanium Backup Pro free search google and get your app!

This worked for me and seems to be the only working solution

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

Dears It's about 10 days I get rid of "Monkey Test" and "Time Service".The Last Antivirus that helped me to clean them was "360 Mobile Safe".If your cellphone infected by them ,try it.Scan completely all files and folders more than 2 times.But if it couldn't ,try "360 Security".Scan completely all files and folders more than 2 times.Then install "360 Mobile Safe" and repeat scan completely more than 2 times.it is the way that I get rid of them.

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

Hi kazux.

If you are still having problems with this can you tell us what phone you are using, what version of Android it uses and where you got the phone from?  Also what company is the phone tied to, i.e. the probably the phone company you bought it off.

Re: "Monkey Test " & "Time Service" Malware s

Guys i've been facing the same problem, and here's a way to get rid of it Fist you should have titanium backup pro installed or lucky patcher . In case u get random apps installed into your phone other then time service and monkey test then uninstall those apps and look for the one that keeps coming back to your phone even when uninstalling it, remember the name of that app. Now If your using titanuim backup pro : search for each app name (time service, monkey test, and the other app) when u find the app click On it and select freeze and that it and that's it after that you won't be bothered by anyone of them anymore. In case your your using lucky patcher : Click on the app Select tools from the option Click on disable package (freeze) That solved the problem for me .hope i helped

monkey test and less time service virus
Author - Soe Han Htun (Myanmar Mobile User Group)

One click solution left was to see a smaller, but clarified fully intends to get manual

Needs an
adb command must be used,
Phone must have root access,
Must put Busybox. (Busybox.apk playstore whereof can be scored easily.
First turn off the phone with wifi Internet.
After the first phone will be connected to the computer.
adb command adb.exe use shift + Right-click on the list by using the open command window here and call cmd box.
Then the following type cmd.

adb shell
su

(I'll need to know the device. Cmd above click on the symbol #. The phone will ask for a superuser request.)
System default user offers read-only permission. So let's do want to read and write permission must be mounting.

mount -o remount, rw / system

Enter. Now remember the name of the virus places to use the ls command.

ls -al / system / app Enter. We will need to appear in the virus file names. if virus is not easy to identify a date. Permission original system files are rw-rr. viruses are rw-rr not.

Where further work.

ls -al / system / xbin
ls -al / system / bin

This xbin bin shelves before the virus file name. Items. (Example - .b, .si.si)
O water to remove the animal from the first application using busybox command.

busybox chattr -iaA / system / app / *

Enter. virus to undermine abortion rights and attributes of the file are changed. So back above cmd attribute. chattr change attribute. (-) Can be used to remove the negative attributes. If you want to add +. i called immutable attribute.

a just append mode only attribute. A Turks Do not track attime attributes. Now used busybox cmd / system / app APK above all attributes all 3 overthrow. Since then delete button. I do not mean everything. For example, we will remove the same cameraupdate.apk.

rm /system/app/cameraupdate.apk

Enter. rm remove. The rm and each virus app from breaking tolerance.

Then, out of the bin and xbin. Remove victims. App they used to refer to all such attributes can not be ousted. Therefore, to remove a cmd 2 guides. For example, an xbin .si.si out what you need.

busybox chattr -iaA /system/xbin/.si.si
rm /system/xbin/.si.si

Xbin prompt and above in the bin. Delete all.

Then
ls -al / system / etc type.  if install-recovery.sh must remove him.
Back end into an app.

com.android.psetting.apk
com.android.psync.apk

This often appear 2.

Using cmd above break down.
Then reboot the phone down.
 go to the phone's application manager running com.android.ads ...... ad in the middle of this century. laugh laugh monkey test time service. APK to uninstall, you're set.

All done.

100% does not guarantee success. Clear up to a 1-week monitoring is no rising up again.
If errors right.
