    I scanned my sister's tablet with McAfee Mobile Security....it notified me that there were three critical threats on the device. Google and GoogleCalendarPluginService were two of them. I think they're not real threats though. The last threat, com.android.configservice.plugin worries me though. McAfee says its a trojan that can do the following things:

    -Incur premium charges.
    -Damage or encrypt files for ransom.
    -Monitor your device and observe your activities.
    -Take advantage of vulnerabilities to access and use your data.
    -Send junk messages and emails from your device.
    -Direct you to a fake website to get your account information.
    -Result in excessive battery/bandwidth drainage.

    This is exactly what McAfee says. I tried to uninstall it but it kept telling me "uninstall unsuccessful." Finally I decided to research this app or whatever it is. Google showed me a page from AVG threat labs about this com.android.configservice.plugin. AVG says that its an unofficial app (not from the Google Play Store). It also says that it's detected potentially active malware within the last seven days from this app. So what do I have to do? How do I get rid of this app? Is it really malware? Thanks for taking the time to read this! It will be greatly appreciated if someone could help me out with this.

    P.S. Here is the link to the page I read if anyone wants to know more details: http://www.avgthreatlabs.com/us-en/a...ervice.plugin/
