Amazon pulls all Blu models from its online store due to fear of backdoor Chinese software
Since it appears as though the ADUPS software is still collecting data from the users of certain BLU models, Amazon has announced that it has discontinued the listing of the company's handsets from its online web store. However, BLU has responded by stating that there is absolutely no spyware, malware or secret software of any kind inside any of its phones. The company says that originally it was unaware that a small number of its phones did contain a version of the ADUPS OTA. Since BLU did not know about this, it did not contact customers to tell them that the software was collecting phonebook contacts and text messages. One it discovered the privacy issue, Blu had ADUPS turn off the functions on its application that could be considered a privacy breach.
