    On my SGS4, Lookout claims that all my older versions (in my backed up apks) and a brand new version from the Play store of com.mdc.ustv has spyware (Adware.Android.RevMob.a). Should I remove ustv?

    Same here. Mine is com.mobileroadie, except Lookout is unable to remove it. Should I be concerned? This thread is the only mention of this I can find on the internet at this point. Help please...

    Likely false positives.

    AFAICT the USTV app is clean and not malicious. I use it myself to watch TV stations that would otherwise be blocked or not available here in China.

    Now, I'm comfortable using their app.
