"This is to exploit a automatic activation in the phone, and when the phone receives a particular message or of a particular course of action occurs is done automatically, so that when you exploit something that happens automatically, you are aware of this, and therefore a large proportion of the people don't even know that have been exploited by this virus or malicious attack," said Lucas Vanwingerden with USC department of informatics of the North.
