Brussels, 14 September 2021 – Since last week, mobile operators have blocked over 2 million text messages each day. Indeed, the dangerous Flubot virus is raging again. This virus can take full control of a mobile phone and send text messages on behalf of the victim to all contacts saved in the device’s directory as well as to other mobile phone numbers. Over 2,000 infected mobile phones have been already blocked by mobile operators during the past few days due to an abnormally high text message traffic.
