Be Ware.....Hackers May Steal Bank Accounts

New Delhi, Jan 14: It is quite possible that hackers may try to steal bank account login details of WhatsApp users through a well planned scam.

As per reports, hackers are targeting unsuspecting users with a mobile virus that is distributed via legitimate-looking Word documents sent inside WhatsApp.

Once opened, these documents are capable of siphoning sensitive information from users, including online banking credentials and other personal data.

So far, the technique has only been demonstrated in India, with the malicious files bearing the names of the NDA (National Defence Academy) and NIA (National Investigation Agency) to try and lure WhatsApp users into downloading and opening the virus-laced files.

According to a report central security services in India have issued a notification to the NDA and NIA. It is believed the WhatsApp attacks are attempts to target people in uniform or those interested in these organisations.

The virus is purportedly able to access personal data stored on the smartphone, including banking credentials and PIN codes.)(Input from agencies)
