What are malicious SMS applications?
Nowadays, almost all Android devices are vulnerable to any kind of attack that could allow hackers to access the vulnerable device without the owners being aware of it.
Malicious SMS applications look like a totally legitimate SMS application but it actually works on a spying manner. The attacker can easily install the malicious app directly into your device whereby they get your consent to monitor your messages. Once the software is installed into your device to be monitored, it logs activity such as SMS messages.
These malicious SMS applications are able to retrieve users' new text messages but it will also extract old and deleted text messages as well. It does this by scouring the memory of the mobile device and extracting all available old and deleted text messages that haven’t been overwritten.
