Voice message leads to malware
The NCSC is currently receiving reports of text messages alerting the recipient to a supposed voice message. Anyone who clicks on the link in the text message is taken to a fake website, where the victim is prompted to download the message. In reality, however, it is a case of malware. Do not download this file under any circumstances. Do not click on the link in the text message and delete the message.

Text messages with alleged notifications lead to malware
Text messages with alleged (parcel) notifications are currently in circulation. Here are some examples (in German): «S ie haben einen neue Bena chrichtigung!» or «Tr acking: Ihr Paket ist unteowegs». The spaces in some words are typical. Clicking on the link opens a page on which packaged software is supposed to be downloaded. It is actually the FluBot malware. If you have received such a text message, delete it immediately. Do not install the file under any circumstances!
