2GB tech expert Charlie Brown urged anyone who receives one of the texts to avoid the hyperlink at all costs, to prevent ‘Flubot’ malware being installed on their device.

“When that malicious software goes into your phone, it then harvests your contacts book and spreads itself out to everybody via SMS,” he told Jim Wilson.

“It’s spreading faster than the flu’s spreading at the moment.”
