Cybercriminals and nation-state actors continue to launch smishing attacks to steal credentials and distribute malware, according to Michael Marriott, Senior Strategy and Research Analyst at Digital Shadows. Marriott describes a new Android banking Trojan called “AbereBot” that’s being sold on cybercriminal forums. Since the Trojan targets mobile devices, it’s distributed via text messages.
“This is just one recent example, and barely a month goes by without another Android malware making news headlines,” Marriott says. “Back in January, for example, FluBot was reported to have spread quickly and significantly across targets. This malware was installed by SMS, in this case purporting to be from a delivery company providing a package tracking link. Users were prompted to download an application that would enable them to track the package, however, the malicious application enabled the attacker to capture banking credentials.”
Marriott cites advice from the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) on how to avoid falling for these scams:
New-school security awareness training can enable your employees to recognize social engineering attacks.
