FluBot' malware scam delivery message 
Watch out for scam package delivery messages containing dangerous 'FluBot' malware. Affecting Android devices, these messages have been found to contain a dodgy link to download an app that can infect your phone with malware. The malware can harvest passwords and other personal information, it also accesses contacts to send out further messages. Always be wary of unsolicited texts, and think twice before you click on a link. 

If you think you've received a genuine delivery message, but you’re not certain, then contact the delivery company’s official customer service helpline to verify the message. If you've received a similar message and you think it’s a scam you can simply delete it. If you'd like to report it then you can do so by forwarding the message to 7726 - a free reporting service provided by phone operators. 

If you've received this message and you've already downloaded the infected app then follow these steps: Don't enter any passwords or log into any accounts. Perform a factory reset on your device. After resetting your device you may be prompted to restore from a backup, but do not restore any apps that you've accessed or downloaded since your device was compromised. Once you've restored your device you should change your passwords on your accounts to ensure they are secure.
