Android/PUP.Riskware.SMSreg.ANFEN


Recommended Posts

I searched online and could not find any forum discussing this threat. I have it on my phone and it seems to mess up my phones touch screen here and there. It is not constant it is almost like someone has remote access to my phone and just randomly touching my screen. Sometimes when I touch the top of the screen it thinks I touched the bottom. Any help fixing this?

Hi @Bogg,

The threat Android/PUP.Riskware.SMSreg.ANFEN is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP).  This particular riskware is known a SMSReg due to it's ability to register a device via SMS.  It's a pretty low level threat, and certainly wouldn't cause the screen issues you are having.  It may be a good idea to see what's running in the background and remove apps that use a lot of performance.  However, it sounds like it could be a hardware issue with the touchscreen.
