Achieving Herd Immunity – Flubot and Smishing Solutions Part 7/7

Flubot and smishing solutions are needed as mobile subscribers are under attack. The opportunity for networks to succeed here spans from operations to marketing and there is no reason that operators shouldn’t flex. As mobile data becomes more of a commodity, it is more and more difficult to add value to mobile plans and really stand out to customers. Security and protection that is visible to the end customer is a chance to escape the race to the bottom and give network branding a real advantage over competing networks.

Is There a Cure? – Flubot and Smishing Solutions Part 6/7

Flubot and smishing solutions are needed as mobile subscribers are under attack. Arguably, yes. Let’s think in terms of a vaccine, and a treatment. Verifying the integrity of every single URL in every single SMS sent to subscribers is the fastest way to stop both Flubot and smishing in their tracks. For users and networks already affected by malware, there is a way to test and identify infected handsets, and thereby alert subscribers to the infection and help them to purge the malware from their device.

Challenges to securing URLs in SMS – Flubot and Smishing Solutions Part 5/7

Flubot and smishing solutions are needed as mobile subscribers are under attack. Many solutions are proposed to this problem, but frankly, none of them are working well enough. Malicious URLs are still responsible for over 90% of all cyberattacks. Each solution addresses part of the problem, and while none are in-effective in what they aim to do (like hand-washing, mask-wearing, and social distancing), these measures slow the problem but are far from a real cure.

What is the problem for the operator? – Flubot and Smishing Solutions Part 4/7

Flubot and smishing solutions are needed as mobile subscribers are under attack. The most immediate concern is the current news cycle. It will, however, only take one network publicly and visibly ending this problem for subscribers to demand more from their own mobile networks.

What is the difference between Flubot and Smishing? – Flubot and Smishing Solutions Part 3/7

Flubot and smishing solutions are needed as mobile subscribers are under attack. Smishing affects Android and Iphone users alike, for one. Even iPhone users who may be immune to Flubot are just as susceptible to smishing scams.Smishing does not compromise the phone in any way, and works solely by funneling the user to the phishing website. The Flubot on the other hand, is smishing plus a trojan malware bonus. The malware is more sophisticated and able to gather more information over time.

Anatomy of a Smishing Attack – Flubot and Smishing Solutions Part 2/7

Flubot and smishing solutions are needed as mobile subscribers are under attack. Smishing techniques vary and often incorporate other touch points, such as calling the victim impersonating a trusted entity and using social engineering to trick the victim into giving away sensitive information. We will describe the most basic and common smishing technique, however there are many variations to this attack.
