Unanswered Question List.
is it possible to hack anyone just by sending simple sms.
Yes, it can be possible but the
sms should be containing mailicious link of any
apk file which is malware.
Moreover, it is like SMISHING attack similar to phishing attack. Attacker sends a message to victim which contains the offer or proposal kind of things. When victim opens the link the
apk file starts downloading or any browser exploit starts which ultimately gets the mobile connection to the attacker when it is installed. So, the thing is very similar to phishing but the application will take control over your phone and you might not be able to check whether any process is ongoing or not.
This can be done by metasploit framework and reverse tcp exploit.
