I updated to the build UMI PLUS.V3.01_20161117, since it was listed as a download for the plus model. However that version has never shown up as a official download version that can be updated with Rootjoy. I have McAfee checking my phone and now it is saying that the "Wireless update Version 4.3.0.0.0" has a virus named Artemis!bc642c75182e. I am very concerned about this and I am thinking of going back to the initial version. Any comments?

That's a false alert to serve a hype born on the internet and to make more profit to such antivirus app makers. Since that app performs the wireless update (FOTA) of your phone, it must send some data (IMEI, software versions and some more) to the FOTA server in order to identify your phone as an appropriate and licensed device to send the current update file.

But, I didn't have a virus warning with either of the two earlier versions. It certainly could be a false positive, but I would think that the same false positive would be in all three versions.

Earlier ROM versions contain exactly the same version of the Wireless update app (the same file), however the antivir apps periodically make their virus databases updated. For marketing reason -  since you hardly can ever meet a virus on Android systems - these apps ''must'' treat as virus everything, that's a little bit suspicious or nobody would use them. These antivir apps occupy a lot of resources of your phone while sending a lot of sensitive data from your phone, so overall they themselves work as such kind of viruses.

I had this problem, but then I installed a virus scanner http://myspybot.com/crbr-encryptor/. Very effective!
