To bypass the security of the popular instant messenger WhatsApp and hack into a user account, hackers have adopted a new scheme. It is reported by 91mobiles.com.
Fraudsters call the user and ask him to dial a specific number. If the victim does what the hackers ask her to do, then the attackers easily gain access to the account.
In particular, we are talking about numbers that start with 67 or 405. As noted, such numbers are often used by logistics companies.
After that, cybercriminals will gain access to the account and demand money from the victim for non-disclosure of confidential information.
How scammers get access to user data is not specified.
