Plus Archaeologists trace history of mobile phone

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, British scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the British, in the weeks that followed, an American archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story published in the New York Times: “American archaeologists, finding traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the British”.

One week later, Australia’s Northern Territory Times, reported the following:

“After digging as deep as 30 feet in his backyard in Tennant Creek, Northern Territory, aboriginal Billi Bunji, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely fuck-all. Billi has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Australia had already gone wireless…”

Makes you feel bloody proud to be an Australian!

Flubot targets Android mobile phone users & their $$$$$

Malware steals login credentials for banking and cryptocurrency mobile phone apps — and it could spread around the world – Alert issued 14 May 2021

Flubot, also called Cabassous, is an Android banking malware (also a banking trojan) that is pushed by cybercriminals in large-scale campaigns, targeting consumers across Europe this spring. 

Access to the botnet is being sold in underground forums by the operators to criminal groups as a so-called malware-as-a-service (MAAS). The actors behind the Flubot botnet sending Smishing (SMS phishing) messages with fake notices of upcoming package deliveries and urge the victim to follow a link to track the shipment.  

The landing page then presents a download button supposedly required to track the package. After a victim falls for this social engineering trick, Flubot is downloaded to the mobile device and requests various permissions, including access to the contact list, sending SMS messages, and overlaying other applications.  

The contact list is subsequently sent to a command-and-control (C&C or C2) server and used to seed new waves of smishing messages that are sent through infected phones (devices).  

The Flubot malware does not exploit any vulnerabilities in the Android OS or targeted devices but prompts the user to manually grant two powerful system permissions. These permissions allow the attackers to steal credentials from banking and cryptocurrency apps on infected devices, using overlays and then exfiltrate one-time-password (OTP) and two-factor authentication (2FA) codes.

Moral of the story – If you’re not expecting a package, don’t click any links.  If you are expecting a package, only click links in the email received from the supplier when you order.  I have received many of these fake emails, always delete without clicking on links.
