Finland's National Cyber Security Center (NCSC-FI) has issued a warning about the FluBot Android malware infections increasing due to a new campaign that relies on SMS and MMS for distribution.

FluBot is looking to steal financial account credentials of its victims by overlaying phishing pages on top of the legitimate banking and cryptocurrency applications.

Additionally, it can access SMS data, perform phone calls, and monitor incoming notifications to snatch temporary authentication codes like one-time passwords (OTP), required besides the regular login credentials.
