A malicious piece of spyware that takes over devices in order to steal sensitive information like passwords and bank details. 

An example of a FluBot being used in the UK is highlighted in the reports of ‘package delivery’ style scams on android devices, whereby text messages are sent supposedly from a delivery company about a ‘missed delivery’. By clicking on the url link in the message, victims are encouraged to download an app on a fake website. However, by doing so they are downloading a FluBot which than takes over their device and can spread quickly, sending out scam messages to contacts in your device.
