Technical Details

SmsUploader.A uploads every SMS messages' content found on the device to a remote server. Once installed, SmsUploader.A places an icon titled 'SMSUpload' on the application menu. When launched, it requests that the user restart the device and informs the user that the application will be running in the background.

While apps with such behavior may be legitimately used by the device's authorized user, they are classified by security programs as riskware because in the hands of unauthorized users, they can also be used to cause damage to the user's data or the device.

If you are confident that you are aware of the risks involved in using the program and consent to its use, you may choose to keep it installed on your device.
