Clicking OK is not always OK!

The Centre for Cyber Security Belgium and the Cyber Security Coalition are joining forces again for an annual cyber security awareness campaign on how to protect mobile devices.

The most notable cyber-attack to hit ordinary Internet users these last few years was undoubtedly the spread of the FluBot virus. Thousands of smartphones were infected with this virus in no time because users carelessly downloaded an application. That way, the virus was able spread unnoticed to all of the victims’ contacts. Mobile viruses (mobile malware) are clearly on the rise. FluBot may have been the first, but it is certainly not the last virus to target mobile devices. The topic of the campaign therefore is how to protect your mobile devices.

Clicking OK is not always OK!

Nowadays, almost everyone has at least one mobile phone in their pocket. We cannot imagine a life without our smartphones. We use them to shop, play games, track deliveries, etc. To do this, we download all kinds of useful apps. But this comes with a risk. If you’re not careful, you could be installing a virus. Clicking OK is not always OK! The campaign’s key message is clear therefore: Only download apps from official app stores to keep viruses out.
