LaunchOut.A is a trojan that downloads new software and monitors SMS messages on a compromised device.
F-Secure's Mobile Security product blocks installation of this program with default settings.
LaunchOut.A hides itself and avoids appearing on the device's user interface to keep its presence unnoticed. Its activities, which are carried silently in the background, include:
- Downloading and installing new software
- Monitoring and sending out SMS messages
