Flubot virus: "your package is on its way, follow it here”

Illustration de l'actualité - cliquer pour agrandir
You may have already received several suspicious text messages, appearing to be from a parcel service with messages that tell you: "Your parcel is on its way, follow it here".

If you click on the link in the SMS, you are then asked to download an application that installs a virus on your device. The virus can then access your personal data (passwords, credit card details, contact list).

The Flubot virus takes full control of your mobile phone and sends SMS messages in your name to all the contacts in your phonebook, even internationally.

You can find all the information you need to remove the virus on the safeonweb.be website. You can also send screenshots of the fraudulent messages to suspect@safeonweb.be.
