In early November, the flagship smartphone LG G4 started to upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in South Korea, and even earlier – in Poland. Syudya to have any major problems with the update were found, because now the firmware upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow began to spread in other regions of Europe.
No update available “over the air” (OTA) and requires use software LG Bridge to synchronize with your computer. The update weighs 1.55 GB. According to Reddit user at this time an update is available in Portugal, Poland, Romania, Germany, Turkey, Great Britain, Croatia, Bulgaria and Switzerland.
The company “Doctor Web” reports the active dissemination of Trojan Android.Spy.510, install unwanted module displays advertisements on top of running applications. Malicious applications running on tablets and smartphones running operating system Android.
Android.Spy.510 distributed as part of a modified version of multemedia player AnonyPlayer. Trojan version of the player is fully operational and has all the features of the original program, so the user does not arise any suspicion. After installing and running the application collects and transmits to the management server sensitive data, including information about models of infected smartphone or tablet, version information, SDK, the presence in her root-access and user account Google Play. The Trojan then installs optional software package, which contains the basic functions needed attackers. The user is shown a message proposing to install an application AnonyService, ostensibly to help prevent the third parties of confidential information and ensuring anonymity. In fact, this program is an advertising module.
After starting Adware.AnonyPlayer.1.origin requests access to special features of the operating system, and then goes into standby mode. The application starts to display advertising in just a few days after installation. It is noted that this is done in order to reduce the probability of detecting a user source of unwanted activity. The program starts tracking all events occurring in the system and is waiting for the owner of the smartphone or tablet to launch an application, and then starts to display advertising. First Adware.AnonyPlayer.1.origin checks to find the appropriate program in the “white list”, where cybercriminals have placed some applications which, in their opinion, do not contain functions for the demonstration of commercial offers. These include the camera application, a calendar, a calculator, view SMS / MMS and a number of other programs. If this list is a match, the Trojan does not take further action, as advertising sales after the launch of the “clean” program can alert the user.
In the event that triggered the application is not in the “white list”, Adware.AnonyPlayer .1.origin creates a special notification with cell WebView, a window is displayed over the beginning of the program, and includes advertising, said control server. As a result, the owner of the unit may think that the source of the notification – a running application. The authors of the Trojan made sure to divert suspicion from their creations because when you run both the Adware.AnonyPlayer.1.origin, and application Android.Spy.510, no advertising is not displayed.
Employees the company “Doctor Web” recommend to owners of tablets and smartphones with the Android operating system to install applications only from trusted sources, and are extremely attentive and cautious about programs that require access to special features of the operating system (Accessibility Service). If a malicious application will get this access, they can begin to interact with the GUI and intercept information entered by the victim, working as a keylogger. As a result, the program may be able to steal confidential data, including personal correspondence, passwords and searches.
It is noted that the recording deactivating Trojan application Android.Spy.510, as well as set their advertising program Adware. AnonyPlayer.1.origin, entered into the database by Dr.Web virus and pose no danger to users of antivirus.

The first impression
The first thing we see is, in fact, own alarm clocks. A total of two, and they were taken from the system settings, that is preset by me initially in Android. In the upper right corner you can find the button to quickly add an alarm clock, as well as the “three points”, under which lurk in the settings and add-ons. If we talk about the interface, it is simple and spartan made in black and white, that does not stop to please look and quickly figure out what’s what.
On tradition dig into the settings. You can adjust the volume of the alarm. By the way, in addition to the total volume and the volume of the main signal may adjust the volume of the pre-signal, which is convenient, since the first “call” is not obliged to make you fall out of bed with fright. It is possible to enable / disable the alarm in silent mode – extremely useful feature, because sometimes we just do not want to hear anybody, and sleep because it does not want.
The following set alarm sound, but the sounds are taken from your firmware, then there is nothing original. To install the mp3 on the call need to download the appropriate application, but it alone does not need to look, as the link to the mp3 cutter in Google Play (mp3 trimmer) is also under the “three points” in the tab “Advanced”. These programs make it easy to cut the sections of mp3-melodies and set them as an alarm clock. You can choose any of the extensive list. It does not say anything – an interesting approach to the independence of the user, since the developer does not promote any “own” app, but simply advises that you can use. By the way, in order to get more ringtones, you can download a third-party provider, for example, Zedge. About all this developer also writes on his page on Google Play.
Also, You can also install Dashclock – lock screen widget for your desktop, which is perfectly integrated with the “simple alarm clock.” Well, to complete the picture and make it. We check the whole thing during testing.
But back to the settings. There is a possibility and customization, that is me in the dark Holo interface, or a “bold green” (has a sense of humor Kulikova, do not say anything). Then adjust the effect on the physical volume buttons: to do nothing, to put the alarm to turn it off altogether. Conveniently! It is also possible to activate the “Hold button” disable “to turn off the alarm,” and “show the time until the next signal at the bottom of the list of alarms.”
You can also set the call prior alarm before the main (10 to 60 minutes), select the rise time of the volume (from 10 to 120 seconds) and retry interval signal (via 5 or 30 minutes). In addition, select the time available, how many stops you worry Service (5 to 30 minutes, or permanently disabled).
As a result, the first impression – excellent, because the program has everything you need to ensure that you are not asleep on the job. This setting clear and without unnecessary frills. If you want bells and whistles, please use third-party programs that I mentioned above. Now we have to check all this in action.

The laboratory site continues to acquaint readers with the online movie theaters for the android-devices.

Google Play Movies
«Google Play Movies” – legally and, perhaps, one of the dominant kinoservisov for mobile devices based on Android OS. Did you know about this service? Probably yes, but hardly use, which is not surprising. Since this online movie theater offers a surcharge (with rare exceptions), and legal content, the lovers of all free pass.
When you first start «Google Play Movies” welcomes us a splash and a brief description of its advantages.
Then we get to the main screen, which is presented in a such a card with the content recommended by Google. We will see the name of the movie, trailer, logo and rating. If we were interested in the film, you can immediately view the trailer, or add bookmarks to watch later.
At the functionality of the application «Google Play Movies” ends. The thing is that to view information about the film, its purchase and all other through Google Play. But that’s because we do not hurt?

Sami publishers can limit the services provided, for example, offering only movies in high quality. On average, the difference in cost between the quality of the video is $ 01.03 to purchase and $ 1-2 for rental.
By the way, bought or rent a movie can be viewed on all devices connected to the same account Google. Of course, the content can be broadcast on TV through Chromecast, Google has thought of the good use of all its devices.
To view the content in the application video player provided. It is simple to outrageous, and it is impossible to change it, which is not good. But he has one indispensable function – to download movies to your device for viewing offline.
