Beware of hacker SMS about alleged parcel delivery
The new banking Trojan FluBot has been rampant in Europe since around June 2021. According to RTR, about 200 reports of fake SMS are now received daily in Austria by its reporting centre for number abuse. The link contained in the SMS, when executed, leads to the installation of a malicious app on Android phones. This type of scam is called "smishing" (SMS + phishing) and aims to grab users' sensitive data. Since the beginning of the month, 1900 complaints have been registered within a few days, 1400 related to the fake packet SMS. Apple smartphones also receive these SMS, but are not currently at risk from the app.
If you have unintentionally installed the FluBot banking Trojan, contact your mobile operator immediately and switch off your device as a precaution until further steps have been taken.
