Uninstall not successful Android/trojan.spy.smsthief.ay

Recommended Posts

This is the first time a scan has shown issues on my phone. I am using an LG L31L on Straightalk Wireless.

Tonight a scan ran and popped up with an issue:



When I attempt to remove it, it says "Uninstall not successful". I have read a couple other related forums. To my knowledge (based off of reading through all the posts) this was/is a false issue that was supposed to be fixed in December 2015. All my apps are up to date, including malware bytes. Is this something I should be concerned with, or is the bug not fixed?

Hi Buznjeni,


This is a false detection and we have fixed, the update is now live. Please let us know if the app is still being detected after Malware DB update 2016.01.21.01 on the About screen.


Thanks for your patience.
