Flaws Leave Android Smartphones Vulnerable to Phishing Attacks
CheckPoint researchers recently discovered a vulnerability to advanced phishing attacks in a wide variety of Android phones (including models by Samsung, Huawei, LG and Sony).
These attacks trick users by using a phony provisioning message controlled by an attacker and disguised as a legitimate sender. You’ve probably seen those provisioning messages in the form of text messages coming from mobile operators when crossing the borders of a country and landing in a foreign airport, or when changing mobile carriers.
Now imagine if it isn’t the mobile operator behind these text messages, but a hacker on the other end of the link. This scenario poses a significant risk to the personal data contained on mobile devices.
ZoneAlarm Extreme Security 2019 is the most powerful multi-device protection, preventing attacks over WiFi and cellular networks and any attempts to route the messages to a malicious server. Moreover, it blocks all phishing links and detects any malicious behavior attempting to compromise your device and steal your data.
