Malware is made to generate revenue for cybercriminals.
Malware can steal your information, make your devices send SMS messages to premium rate text services, or install adware that forces you to view web pages or download apps.
Info stealers can collect your contact list and personal info for their own use as well as sell it on the dark web. Cybercriminals also use malware with ransomware where they lock up a device and encrypt all of its data then demand payment from victims in order to regain access.
