Massive cellphone hacks, root level, allows hacked FF download

Two Oct 2017 microprocessor chipset vulnerabilities have been used on phones manufactured through July 2019, that allow Foreign Bad Actor APT groups to develop cofe, based on reverse engineered Open Source code, to download multiple apps, including browsets, GBoard and other alternative keyboards, and communications apps (Gmail, text and messaging, phone ) applications.

These copy apps run in the OS at startup (using a thumbnail hackede Opera version - but not the expected Opera Mini version for Android), and are oberved as duplicates when clearing app cache, as repeating application responses to a command. They also appear as phantom duplicate app notifications, in Rent Apps List toggles, and hidden apps in hacked desktop Launchers)

The malware payload launcher may also be appended to poorly written apps, from third party app stores, but also from malware originating from Chinese made inexpensive phones with continued 2017 chipset vulnerabilities, eg older chipsets not soft patched or replaced eith hardcoded newer code.

Therefore, we suspect tens of millions of compromised phones are in use. These phones leak small communication pack streams of scavenged user information while the phone is on, regardless of hacked Launcher UI status indicator (off) and through hacked BlueTooth and Nearby Share applications using javascript and Lineux remote toggles, that can activate and use camera and microphones to record user calls and environment.

Perhaps authenticator checks buried in code, could alert users of duplicated browsers, as all other FF privacy protections are nulled by these hijacks.

When I click on a link in Amazon email (ie. "track order"), FF mobile will not load page (Page cannot be found). If I change setting to open links in app, it will send me to Play Store to download the app (I don't wan to use the app), AND load the page correctly in FF Mobile.

I need a fix.

When I sign in to Wal-Mart.com with Firefox. I get a constant barrage of messages asking me to press and hold to prove I am human. It never works. It says try again in red letters. Then it says technical problem, try again. Then it can say robot or human and the process repeats itself for anything I try to do at that site. Opera opens immediately and has none of these problems. Walmart told me Firefox is to blame. Help!

Occasionally there are websites that seem to trick my Firefox for Android 93.1.0 to launch the AliExpress app I have installed. This is surprising since I have the "open links in apps" option set to false and I don't explicitly use the "Open in app" menu item in this case. Is this expected behaviour?
