Technical Details

SndApps.A was originally marketed as an innocuous gaming application. However, questionable services and permissions were later added into the application through an update, a practice referred to as 'Update Attack.'

After the update, SndApps.A is capable of accessing data such as carrier name, device's ID, and email addresses, and forward these data to a remote server.
