Custom build alps-mp-q0.mp1-V3_tct.q0mp1.k61v1.64.b sp_P62

I've never done anything "custom" to any of my phones because I'm not knowledgeable enough. So how did this custom build get put on my phone when I'm the only one who uses it and bought it brand new, what does it do, and does that mean someone rooted it? It is a Alcatel A508DL, model name A2X, from Walmart Family Mobile.

We want to help shed some light on things for you, @Gretel_Smitty

 

How long has it been since you purchased the device? We recommend taking the device back to the authorized dealer for additional help with this matter.

I have the same issue. Except i was given this phone (TCL A508DL/A2X) and the custom build version wasn't installed until i placed my T-Mobile sim card in this device.

When you switch service providers, or put a SIM card from a service provider in a phone the service provider downloads its network software to make sure that your phone is compatible with their Network. This can only be done if the manufacturer permits. 

If you had phones in the past whether they were carrier branded or unlocked you may have noticed that every once in awhile your phone will get an update and it will say carrier Network update. It may contain anything from software to make your phone work better with their voicemail system, to connect to new LTE or 5G bands that have become available, make sure your phone is Wi-Fi calling compatible and many other services that are provided from the carrier to your phone.

This is a hack allowing remote access. T-Mobile has failed to assist me with this as well. I’ve been under cyber attack for a year straight. On my iPhones as well. I consider myself a contributor to 16.1.1 and am still trying to get them to fix things with iPhone . Androids are too open. Get a degoogled android if you want privacy. This custom rom is installed remotely!

I too have this and it is remote. Yet my homes old internet is still operating on my home and I don't use it or pay for it. Whenever I get a new phone , new email and new name, the hackk comes back via my home internet scanning my phone? 

It's I believe called the Janus vulnerability. Or used to be called sim card scam..

I have reported to ic3.gov but they want one to list who it is, their email, pix and attachments of the hackers address etc... This is oxymoronic since if I knew I would go to police. 

This has been on me since Sept of 2019. And I am on my 21 phone and lost 2 la tops, and 2 tablets. My iphone I can't sign out of, and it's still showing active. That means all my old numbers and emails are being left behind good this hacker to use. It's harbors in apps I don't use or have protection. 

I reported it was so bad I want to take my own life and the gov sent the police to my home. Still nothing done. 

I have no where to go with secure internet or anywhere where I won't give it to another while trying to out my vpn back on my phone. It hacks apple and eventually my vpn. 

This is serious. It takes video and records anytime it wants and it holds contacts and phishing them without my knowledge. 

Why me? I am a house cleaner that goes into million dollar homes. But I will not take my phone anywhere due to this spreading. I know it is! 

And no one cares!!!

Please don't do anything drastic. I'm in the same situation and thought and tried everything you talked about. Luckily I'm still here for my child. Just know I care if no one else does. I've filled reports with fbi cyber crimes as well. Nothing. F everything right!?

I have good news for at least the PC side of things. Due to this being in my opinion a variant of the Log4f bug…on your PC you should be able to update that specific portion of Java. Google it and you will see directions.

I reported the whole vulnerability in a VERY detailed report to Apple, did I mention very detailed? Tried to recoup some lost expense through their bounty rewards program. Don’t send them anything they are shady. All of a sudden months worth of notes disappeared and advisors started changing stories. I am the reason for 16.1 and 16.1.1 both times tried to claim bounty too. It was perfect haha, I was on the phone speaking with an advisor about it the security team was going to respond about the bounty…I get a call on the other line from another advisor saying “oh, did you see the patch that just came out, that should fix your problem.” So basically, they lie steal and cheat. Then spit in your face. Now looks like we have a platform finally. If you use a software firewall on your Mac such as Little Snitch, it clearly comes from their internal servers. iCloud. Developer options etc.

This is some variant of log4f or Pegasus. How this jumps from devices is because Java is in everything. It creates servers and jumps and jumps. Companies have been shown where then open door is and still we suffer. Just waiting for news or a lawyer to reach out. Stay strong.
