‘Do Not Download’: Android Users Warned Of Malware Via Fake Netflix App


LAHORE MIRROR (Monitoring Desk)– The National Information Technology Board on Tuesday warned Android users of a malware threat via a fake Netflix app named “FlixOnline”.

“Do not download the Netflix app [named] FlixOnline. It transfers harmful file to your device,” wrote NITB in a post on Twitter.

“Never use any untrusted app or APK (file). Stay alert and stay safe!” it added.

The post, describing the threat, said that a “wormable Android malware” is found on the Google Play Store which multiplies as it automatically replies to a user’s incoming WhatsApp messages. It sends a harmful file which infects the phone.

“Users are advised not to download FlixOnline and uninstall if present,” the IT Board said.
