SECURITY & FRAUDIndia Lender Warns Of WhatsApp Scam That Steals Bank Details

According to a report in BGR, SBI said messages from WhatsApp and other social media platforms are tricking customers into sharing details of their accounts.

The hackers are tricking the users by first sending a message in an effort to get them to share a one-time password. Some of the WhatsApp messages had an embedded link that installs an app in the background, which is used to get the one-time password from the user’s phone. State Bank of India is allowing customers to get a refund if they report the issue within three business days, noted BRG.

The scam targeting SBI account holders isn’t the only way hackers have been going after consumers in India in recent weeks. In late February, a man was able to trick people out of $250,000 using fake cryptocurrency. According to reports at the time, Pritam Patil asked victims to invest in an initial coin offering of his KBC Coin, which was named after a popular game show in India. He told investors the coin would see a substantial rise. With the cash in hand, he shut down the business and told investors they wouldn’t get their money back.

The use of WhatsApp to target Indian consumers makes sense, given its wide popularity in the country. As of June, the messaging app, which also facilitates digital payments, had more than one million users on its platform.

What is Firewall? A Firewall is a network security device that monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic based on an organization's previously established security policies. At its most basic, a firewall is essentially the barrier that sits between a private internal network and the public Internet.

 

Secure your network at the gateway against threats such as intrusions, Viruses, Spyware, Worms, Trojans, Adware, Keyloggers, Malicious Mobile Code (MMC), and other dangerous applications for total protection in a convenient, affordable subscription-based service. Modern threats like web-based malware attacks, targeted attacks, application-layer attacks, and more have had a significantly negative effect on the threat landscape. In fact, more than 80% of all new malware and intrusion attempts are exploiting weaknesses in applications, as opposed to weaknesses in networking components and services. Stateful firewalls with simple packet filtering capabilities were efficient blocking unwanted applications as most applications met the port-protocol expectations. Administrators could promptly prevent an unsafe application from being accessed by users by blocking the associated ports and protocols.
