Starting this morning, F-Secure Freedome has been warning me that my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 device is infected. It says that "System UI" is infected with "Trojan:Android/SmsSend.AB". I have scanned my phone with Sophos, Kaspersky, Norton, and Bitdefender, yet they do not detect any malware on my phone. I am running Freedome version 184.108.40.20636 on Android 5.1.1.
I have checked the System UI permissions on another Galaxy Note 5 and the permissions are identical. I have also checked with my wireless carrier and there have been no suspicious SMS messages sent from my device to premium numbers or otherwise. Indications are this is a false positive on F-Secure's behalf.
Is the detection shown from the App Security feature in Freedome? Please open a support request in order to investigate this further.
Just to say that I have the same issue flagged up by Freedome (on Samsung Note 4). I thought it unlikely to be a false positive, so thanks, Scholar, for mentioning it. I've sent a support request.
Here's a screenshot
This suspected false positive has been updated on our backend. Could you please check again and keep us posted if the issue persists?
