Beware of WhatsApp hacking
Anonymous | 07 Nov 2023
The hacker discreetly reached out to our company's WhatsApp contacts, asking for money, which raised suspicions among most of them. Fortunately, we detected this early and disconnected the linked device to prevent further malicious activities. I believe there are others who may not be as fortunate and remain unaware that unauthorized hackers are lurking in their WhatsApp active device list, ready to cause more trouble. WhatsApp contains a wealth of personal information and can be exploited to gather further data for scams or blackmailing individuals on the contact list. Many employees have also started receiving spam calls from overseas numbers recently, likely due to our contacts being obtained from the WhatsApp contact list.
