Technical Details

Trojan:Android/Saiva was discovered around Valentine.s Day in 2011 and is another malware that derives profit from SMS-sending activities.

Upon execution, it displays a fake progress bar and pretends to be performing a download; however it silently sends out SMS messages containing the text "rb9816" to a specified phone number.

It then displays a notification message in Russian for a supposed system failure. When translated to English, the message is as follows:

  • "Unfortunately there was a system failure. Restart the application again and you would find out the name of the person sending you the Valentine"
