Malware detected in hiddenmenu
« on: July 07, 2022, 05:17:46 PM »
Hello all,
Sorry I'm new to this.  I've run a scan of avast on my Android phone and it is saying malware.  When I click resolve it shows me a screen saying hiddenmenu and the disable button is shaded out.  Has anyone else had this problem and if so how was it resolved? Or is it not a problem?
Thanks in advance.
Patrick

Hello Patrick,

I have exactly the same issue since yesterday evening. Hope someone more experienced with Avast or the topic itself can support?

Best regards
Martin

I have tried to draw Avast attention to this topic and another in the Japanese language sub-forum.

Hi, can you please share a bit more info (name of the detected app, hash, detection screenshot ...). Thanks.

Hi,

This was a false positive detection of the system app called "HiddenMenu".
The detection should no longer occur. Please update the virus definitions (https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/mobile-security-faq/#idt_7800).
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
