How the FluBot virus can infect your phone

Published

on

Threats to our smartphones are always the order of the day, with cybercriminals planning new strategies to seize and profit from our data.

It was recently reported that there is a malware named FluBot created a few months ago, which, by invading the smartphone system, launched an operation to get the user’s bank details and control the device.

Well, now it seems that this threat has returned stronger than ever, adopting new ways to enter smartphones without being noticed.

Initially FluBot penetrated the phone through a text message. Now it has been reported that this malware has managed to insert itself into the system in various ways; one of them as one fake Adobe Flash Player application displayed on the screen when visiting certain websites.

Other forms taken by this malware have been as a fake system update or also a notification. One reason this happens is the installation of apps outside of official stores, in this case the Android Play Store.

In the case of fake apps, these are usually accompanied by the hidden malware in your code, so that, once installed, it can extract the data that is of interest in our device without us noticing it.

In this way, the app can carry out its installation on the phone without raising any suspicion of containing the FluBot, thus going unnoticed in the Android phone system and proceed with its work of collect user information.

That is why it is necessary to take measures that help keep the phone safe from this type of threat. Some useful recommendations for this are:

  • Keep phone software updated to the latest version.
  • Avoid clicking on suspicious links, as well as providing our personal data without checking the legitimacy of the service requesting it.
  • Avoid downloading apps outside of Google Play as much as possible.

Samsung is preparing a smartphone that will be weaker than

Smartphone Samsung Galaxy M54 lit up in the Geekbench database. Unfortunately, as previously reported, he will not receive any SoC Snapdragon 888, although this is expected.

Samsung’s mid-budget novelty will receive the same platform as the Galaxy A54. Probably, the Galaxy A34 will also receive it.

We are talking about the not yet presented Exynos 1380, which will replace the Exynos 1280. In the benchmark, the new SoC scores 750 and almost 2700 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. And this is almost the level of Snapdragon 778G, that is, this is an excellent result for a mid-budget smartphone. True, we are only talking about processor performance, and we do not yet know which GPU the new SoC will receive.

It is also worth noting that the Galaxy M52 was also based on the Snapdragon 778G, and the Galaxy M53 received a slightly less productive Dimensity 900. Thus, the Galaxy M54 model, at least in terms of the processor part, will be slightly inferior even not to its predecessor, but to the device two years ago.

Bullitt Group and MediaTek want to launch a satellite-enabled smartphone

It is assumed that the new smartphone will provide calls and text data via satellite, although it is not yet clear how this will work. The device itself will be released in the first quarter of 2023.

The novelty has been developed for two years, so the project is nearing completion. According to Bullitt Group co-founder Richard Wharton, previously the seamless integration of satellite communications into a smartphone was accompanied by problems, but now they are solved.

The new phone will be the first to use MediaTek’s 3GPP NTN chipset. The software will keep track of what type of connection is currently being used – Wi-Fi or cellular network. The connection to the satellite will be carried out only in the absence of both of these options.

It is claimed that the time to connect to the satellite and send a message is about 10 seconds. This is longer than a regular connection, but still pretty fast.

Note that Apple already has this and Samsung will soon have it.

Apple may sell 15 20 million iPhones less than planned in

Deliveries of top Apple smartphones in the quarter may be much lower than predicted.

Apple may sell 15-20 million iPhones less than planned in the quarter

According to well-known Tianfeng International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, shipments of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max could be 15-20 million lower than Apple originally planned. It’s all about shutting down one of the iPhone factories due to the outbreak of COVID-19. In addition, there are continuing protests of workers, which also does not contribute to improving the situation with production.

Apple transferred some of the orders that Foxconn cannot fully fulfill to Pegatron and Luxshare, but we are talking about only 10%.

According to the results for the fourth quarter, Apple can ship 70-75 million devices instead of 80-85 million, which could have entered the market if it were not for the events that have occurred.

Of course, this will also affect revenue. According to Kuo’s forecast, Apple could earn 20-30% less for the quarter.
