SMS spam: Fake packet notification

“Your order is on the way. Click on the following link to open the shipment tracking.” SMS messages that countless German cell phone owners are currently receiving sound like this or something similar. The senders want to lure the recipients to websites where they can access log-in information or distribute malware. If you receive such a message, delete it directly and don’t click the link. You can recognize the spam very easily by the URL. It does not belong to DHL or any other parcel delivery company, but forwards to cryptic sites. Just ignore the message, there is no package on the way. If you did open the page, scan your phone for malware. And if you have also entered login data there, change them as soon as possible.
