Recall/Return
As an Android user I would be extremely perturbed at baking this into the firmware. So much so that if a recall hasn't been offered I would look towards returning the device. It's unacceptable.

dropper
There are two "dropper" apps that load ads over Web pages or games. One of the droppers is built into the firmware of the devices while the other is completely integrated into the operating system Maybe Android should nor this much open, obviously they can do whatever they want in the OS level.

18K devices
Avast found the malware on more than 18,000 devices in more than 100 countries. It does no seems that many devices. But too many countries obviously.
