Flubot Malware: NCC to Nigerians: Beware, new virus steals banking details

A malware is a generic word used to describe a virus or software, designed specially to “disrupt, damage, or gain unauthorized access to a computer system.”

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) yesterday alerted Nigerian telecom consumers of the existence of a new, high-risk and extremely-damaging malware system called Flubot.

The Commission said information received from the Nigeria Computer Emergency Response Team (ngCERT), indicated that Flubot “targets Androids with fake security updates and App installations”.
