    New to the forum and having a simliar issue...Received a text message from Microsoft titled 732873 with an security access code attached eventhough I haven't requested a password change. Then, my phone log has two return calls to the text message that I dont remember making. That same night, girlfriend gets ransom text message from an email account saying some pretty nasty and personal stuff. Researched a little and heard about the StageFright malware. Have run all of the anti virus apps I can find, but there is no trace. Does anyone think I've been hacked?

    If you have, why do you think it's your phone that's been hacked, as opposed to you computer or an online account? Or even your girlfriend's phone?

    There are a few nasty coincidences there, but I don't feel confident in identifying the source.

    No you haven't been hacked but they are trying to scam you. Don't fall for it. Just ignore it.

    Well, wish I could ignore. Girlfriend is reporting that she is getting my calls, I have apps mysteriously appearing on my phone, think that I hear my camera shutter at times, along with a number of other weird occcurences. Software is up to date, but stagefright detector says im still vulnerable. Downloading a host of malware apps, which all say that I'm ok, but research says that apps arent reliable. Does anyone know if most recent update can remove/destroy stagefright.

    You might want to install Malwarebytes and run a FULL scan.

    I did...but is it able to detect stagefright virus? Heard that it is undetectable for nearly all malware apps..

    That would be a question for them to answer. I believe so, but I can't say definitively.
