AndSpy.A is a monitoring and anti-theft program that originated from China, but is also marketed to several English speaking regions. Its capabilities can be remotely triggered by sending a particular SMS message to the targeted device. If the message contains a valid command, it will silently perform the corresponding task. For example:
- 0#: Register the Master number that will be used to send replies
- 1#: Enable SMS forwarding
- 2#: Disable SMS forwarding
- 8#: Send device's contacts
- 10#: Send location details
AndSpy.A is a stealthy program. It performs malicious activities quietly, and leaves no visible clue that can indicate its presence on the device.
