Hi @notepage,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.  After further review, we have deescalated this to PUP.Hacktool.SmsGate.

Please be aware that PUP (https://blog.malwarebytes.com/threats/mobile-pup/) is NOT malware, and is at the discretion of our users to ignore.

For further information, please review Malwarebytes PUP policy: https://www.malwarebytes.com/pup/

Thanks again,

Nathan

Thank you Nathan for that clarification.

The link to your description of a PUP is:

PUPs use the mobile platform and trusting nature of users to install an app which might have cool functionality but comes bundled with unwanted features such as draining the battery, leaking data, and aggressive advertising.

The app in that .apk file does none of those things. It simply emulates an industry standard GSM modem, so people can use their android device with software that uses the GSM 7.07 specification's command set.

Thanks for helping me with this.

Chris
