The malware spreads by first receiving a text message in Finnish on the phone. The message contains a link to an application download page. The download link on the page provides an installation package for Android devices with an .apk extension.

The Cyber ​​Security Center emphasizes that it is also important to protect your own accounts with multi-stage authentication.
