Cybercrime, FluBot is targeting Android devices in Finland once again

FluBot is targeting Android devices in Finland once again. NCSC-FI cybersecurity experts: The malware aims to steal data from devices, and it is spread via SMS and MMS. Also iPhone users has been targeted, but to bait them in frauds

FluBot is targeting Android devices in Finland once again. It has been denounced by the National Cyber Security Center (NCSC-FI). The malware aims to steal data from devices, and it is spread via SMS and MMS. The messages that are circulating currently are written without Scandinavian letters (å, ä and ö) and in many words have been split by superfluous spaces. The messages have concerned voicemail, unanswered calls and parcel deliveries. They ask the recipient to open the link in the message. Clicking on it, it takes the user to a website instructing on how to install the malware. Furthermore, the messages try to get the user to disable security features to allow the installation of the malicious code. The operation targets Android users, but FluBot has been sent also to other devices. iPhone users, for example, are directed to subscription traps and other fraudulent material.
