SmsSend.A is a version of another malware called OpFake. It reaps profit by sending the message "gf bigfun 281 fnuXW9Ey5" to these numbers: 9993, 9994, and 9995.

SmsSend.C operates in the same way SmsSend.A does, but uses a different display image, message content and recipient numbers. When executed, it displays images of nude women and sends out the message .galve 328 SjhFaG1IK. to the following numbers: 6008, 6006, 6152, and 6952.

Other SmSSend variants follow the same behavior, but use different display images, message contents and recipient numbers.
