That may be the only possible excuse for spyware that allegedly comes preloaded onto the Star N9500, an Android smartphone manufactured in China and sold on Amazon and eBay. According to German security company G Data, the spyware, called Uupay.D, is capable of intercepting personal data transmitted over the phone, such as banking data, phone calls, email messages and text messages. G Data said  Uupay.D can also remotely control the phones camera and microphone, and covertly install more malware onto the device.
