Terry Zink a Microsoft engineer made this discovery. This application was discovered for pirated applications.

Terry Zink describes how he analyzed the headers of spam samples containing the signature "Sent from Yahoo! Mail on Android," tracing them to a number of locations in the Middle East, Asia and Eastern Europe.
