The malware authors added their own code to the application and use of the functionality of the client. Torec was able to receive the following commands from the C&C server: start/stop interception of both incoming and outgoing SMS messages, perform a USSD request, collect and send system-specific data, and send SMS messages to specific numbers. Employing Tor makes it impossible to shut down the C&C server, but to implement this feature requires much more code writing by the authors.

JSMSHider also implemented a communication protocol for communication with the remote C&C server http://svr. com/Te[removed] using DES encryption. The protocol supported seven different packets: set the update rate, set the phone number for SMS, try to install a package, update a package, send an SMS with specific content to a specific phone number, add the APN for Chinese operators, and modify URLs being contacted. com/Update.
