MMS Mobile Malware Alert – May 2022

16th May 2022

O2 are seeing a significant rise in Flubot victims on the network. This current bout of malware was first identified by Vodafone on Wednesday 27th April 2022 and there have since been an increasing number of incidents over the customer base.

Flubot is a text message or MMS scam—part of a large-scale smishing (SMS phishing) attack using a malware named Flubot. It’s currently only impacting Android devices and is spread under the guise of a parcel tracking app or a message with a link to retrieve a voicemail. When the user clicks on the attached link, the malware is downloaded. Due to most TelCos utilising Spam Shield, it would appear cyber attackers have started to use both MMS and SMS. Whilst most UK SMS will be free, MMS will attract a charge per message which helps them to bypass the various controls in place to address spamming and smishing.

If a customer installs the app, the malware is able to take over their device and this allows more infected SMS/MMS to be sent to contacts within the device without their knowledge. The customer’s contacts and banking apps may also be at risk of being accessed by the fraudster.
