What is this?
I have a BLU Life One L120 (4.2.1), I've had it for just over a week. SmsReg, a peculiar little nasty, was discovered on my android phone and I cannot get rid of it. AV identifies it and it then points the finger at other apps.
I've reset my phone back to factory 4 times and it's still there. Installed only one app, Kaspersky, and got a hit and it said: "HEUR:Trojan.AndroidOS.Gedma.a" and points to Kaspersky.
In the report on Kaspersky, it lists as an infected file: /system/app/SmsReg.apk/classes.dex
When asked to delete it, it displays SmsReg and the results are always "uninstall unsuccessful". I can disable it, but is it really disabled?
Visited this link (see below), even installed AVG Antivirus Pro and nadda. Didn't see it, didn't remove it. Malwarebytes, Avast, and Bitdefender missed it, but Comodo and Kaspersky pick it up.
I've spent three days now reading, swearing and fighting with this thing and it's kickin' my backside. Anyone got an idea or a beer?
Thanks in advance.
