OSX/SMSSend is a Trojan that masquerades as an application installer (e.g. VKMustic, History of Sochi) [1]. As part of the installation process, the user is asked to input their phone number to receive a verification code via text message. The provided number is then subscribed to a premium texting service that generates revenue for the malware author [2].
