Application Vulnerability Scanning Service is what it is VZWavService.... VZW meaning the Verizon Wireless ... av meaning the application vulnerability scanning service.. I like most of you went into my Google plus and uninstalled the updates and cleared the cache then rebooted and it went away. Verizon needs to address this problem. I see about the rooting etc, I only wish I knew how to do that without messing something up and I would. But then again my warranty/insurance would be no good
I've had this same issue, so I today uninstalled the update (Settings/Device/Applications/Application Manager/Google+/Uninstall Updates)
then restarted the s5. Before pressing uninstall, I was warned that this would be a factory reset (or could cancel the uninstall).
Then got the error again!
So I did what the Verizon rep on this thread, among others, said to do but it's not fixed.
I do note that via Notifications that "Google+ and My Verizon Mobile" were updated, after the restart. But I don't know if that means g+ was reset to factory specs or if it automatically updated and re-installed the problem update.
A little more help, Verizon, please?
I don't agree with VZW on the fix. They seem reluctant to reveal the functions of vzwavsservice, but it is apparently a VZW hack to Android. I stand by my earlier post recommending that vzwavsservice just be disabled. If it's an application that scans apps for security, as was hypothesized, I suggest installing a tried and true app like AVG which has been around for years across several platforms.
I disabled vzwavsservice two days ago without having to uninstall the Google+ updates, and my S5 is working fine. Thus I'm keeping any bug fixes or security patches that are in the update.
Hi, Began Getting Prompt Upon Turning On my Galaxy S5 AFTER VZW Software Update AND AFTER VZW PROTECT PREMIUM APP UPDATE!
Called Tech Support (Asurion) and was told Problem was from GOOGLE÷ Update.
RESTORED GOOGLE+ TO FACTORY DEFAULT AND PREVENTS ANY UPDATES.
DID NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM!!!
ONE WOULD THINK THAT TECH WOULD KNOW IF PROBLEM WAS FROM THEIR NEW APP!
SO FAR HAVE NOT NOTICED ANY CHANGE IN PER FORMANCE OF MY GS5.
JUST HOPE THERE'S NO MALWARE!
THE VZW PROTECT APP WAS COMPLETELY
REVAMPED! DIFFERENT TO BE CONNECTED TO A VZW SUPPORT TECH-ALWAYS GET ASURION SUPPORT TECH. YET THEY HAVE NO SOLUTION TO CORRECT THIS PROBLEM.
