SMS spam can be defined as sending unsolicited electronic marketing communications (spam) using an SMS or MMS to many users for the purpose of spreading malware, advertising, scams, etc.
The SMS Spam Challenge
Malicious spam text messages (also known as phishing texts or “smishing” – SMS phishing) are tools criminals use to trick users into giving them personal or financial information.
As well as often being for the purposes of distributing malware, spam can slow down company networks and overwhelm the email servers of smaller businesses.
