The notorious FluBot Android banking Trojan has a new, grimly amusing trick up its sleeve: It tries to fool you into downloading a fake “security update” by warning you about … FluBot itself.
“Your device is infected with the FluBot malware,” reads a stark red screen that you’ll see if you click on a link in a text message. “Android has detected that your device has been infected.”
In fact, your device has NOT been infected yet. But it will be if you do what the message suggests: “You must install an Android security update to remove FluBot.”
