My SMS messages are getting deleted. What I noticed is, that some number keeps sending me MMS messages, mostly pictures. Yes, I had the "accept MMS automatically" turned on my Samsung device to ON.

I've heard about Stagefright, but I didn't found any mentions if and how it could potentially delete my SMS - or even access my data (i.E. store a picture).

So the question is: Could an attacker do such thing as deleting message remotely?
