Criminals use SMS fraud
The tactic used is also known as smishing. To do this, the infected device sends real names and phone numbers to a command and control server. You can think of it as a central computer that uses data to fill out SMS templates. Disguised as a DHL message, the server in turn sends the final SMS to the relevant contacts with a request to download the fake application. A deceptive scam starts over and over again. So we recommend that you never download apps outside of the official app stores and that you also use security software for mobile devices. Bitdefender Mobile Security, for example, is convenient because it reliably detects FluBot attacks.
