Pakistan PM House : Attempt to hack sensitive information from phones of government officials foiled
In a statement, the Prime Minister’s House has directed government officials to report any suspicious links on the phone to the Cabinet Division.
The Prime Minister’s House said in a statement on Friday that security agencies have thwarted attempts by unknown hackers to hack mobile phones of senior government officials and obtain sensitive information.
The statement said that unknown hackers tried to obtain sensitive information from other government officials and bureaucracy in the name of some senior government officials and did so by sending mobile hacking links to government officials’ WhatsApp numbers.
According to the statement: ‘Through these links, hackers were trying to obtain sensitive information.’
In the statement, all government officials have been instructed to be vigilant and not to respond to any such message.
“Officers have been instructed to immediately report to the Cabinet Division in case of receiving such a mobile message.”
The statement claimed that Pakistan’s security agencies are fully alert in this matter.
Independent Urdu contacted the spokesperson of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on this matter and he said that he would respond after getting the information. Their response will be included in the news.
The cyber wing of the FIA investigates online crimes including hacking cases in the country.
In the past, there have been reports of hackers on some government websites in Pakistan.
In 2021, there were some media reports that the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) website was hacked on Independence Day, which was restored after about 72 hours.
According to media reports, 360 of the more than 700 highly sensitive virtual machines in the FBR data center were either shut down, or completely taken over.
However, the FBR called it ‘unforeseen anomalies during the migration process’ instead of hacking.
The then Federal Finance Minister did not deny the news of FBR’s data being hacked but denied that the data was being sold on the dark web.
Can WhatsApp be hacked?
According to an article posted on The Independent, a London-based English news website, it is possible to hack into WhatsApp, which in addition to accessing all of a person’s messages, can also steal other people’s private conversations through that account.
The attack in the article allows hackers to gain access to a person’s account by pretending to be a friend, and if they succeed, the hacker can then use that account to access other accounts.
This means that a user under attack can harm not only themselves but also others they come in contact with.
In this attack, hackers use a simple yet powerful method to gain access to various accounts, but it’s quite easy to stay safe, that is, whenever someone tries to gain access to your account, redirect to WhatsApp. Never send the six-digit ‘verification code’ sent from , while you can also set up two-factor verification for added security.
Hacking starts when an attacker gets access to a WhatsApp account, which also has your number stored in it.
They will then send you messages and it will look like they are coming from the person who has the account and the messages will appear as normal.
Meanwhile, you may receive a six-digit code, which is sent by WhatsApp when you try to log in or make changes to an account. This happens because the attacker is secretly trying to convert all the people in the original person’s contact list to a WhatsApp business account.
The attacker, who pretends to be your friend, will then say that he sent the six-digit code to the wrong account, and ask you to help him by sending the code back to him.
If you do this, the attack will succeed because the person will gain access to your account and you will lose it.
Your account will also become another means for the hacker to gain access to more accounts as your friends will also receive similar messages, which appear to be sent by you.
The easiest way to avoid this problem is to not send the six-digit code to anyone. Without this WhatsApp security tools should mean that people cannot access your account.
It is advised not to send these codes to anyone else under any circumstances, but the nature of the above mentioned hacking can make anyone innocent in this case as the message appears to be from a friend. has come.
Other attacks in the past have attempted to do the same, but the messages asking for the code came from the ‘WhatsApp technical team’ or similar.
But what’s potentially harmful about the attack described above is that the message comes from a friend.
But there’s no way such a request is legitimate because users can’t actually send the code to the wrong number and if they do, they can ask for it to be sent back, so whenever someone asks about it. So better to refuse and report the hacking to take further steps about it.
It is also recommended to turn on two-step verification, which provides additional protection to an account.
It locks accounts with a six-digit PIN, which only you have access to and which is sent to a separate phone number and without which no one will be able to access WhatsApp.
