Attention! FluBot Android Banking Malware Spreads Quickly Across Europe: FluBot, a banking trojan, began its operations late last year, infecting more than 60,000 users in Spain, according to Proactive Defence Against Future Threats (PRODAFT) in March 2021. It’s said to have amassed more than 11 million phone numbers from the devices, representing 25% of the total population in Spain.
Primarily distributed via SMS phishing (aka smishing), the messages masquerade as a delivery service such as FedEx, DHL, and Correos, seemingly notifying users of their package or shipment delivery status along with a link to track the order, which, when clicked, downloads malicious apps that have the encrypted FluBot module embedded within them.
Although Spanish authorities arrested four criminals suspected to be behind the FluBot campaign last month, infections have since picked up, while simultaneously expanding the countries targeted to include Japan, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and the Netherlands in a short period of time.
“FluBot is likely to continue to spread at a fairly rapid rate, moving methodically from country to country via a conscious effort by the threat actors,” Proofpoint researchers said. “As long as there are users willing to trust an unexpected SMS message and follow the threat actors’ provided instructions and prompts, campaigns such as these will be successful.” Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2021/04/attention-flubot-android-banking.html
