It is being reported all over the world that people in Tibet are currently being hacked into via WhatsApp. All they have to do is click on a link in a message and the attacker will have pretty much full control of their device.
The technology being used in this attack is particularly frightening as all you have to do is click on a link in order to infect yourself. The word is that the technology was sponsored by the Chinese government and is the same technology that was used.
What can you do?
At the moment this hack is only showing up in Tibet but it could be used anywhere at any time so you have to assume that your phone could be targeted.
Never click on any link from anyone unless you are 100000% certain that it is safe. You cannot take any chances here. One click is all it takes with this one.
We will also be releasing a link checker soon that you can use to check if a link is good or bad.
Please let us know if you need any advice about this or about anything else.
