Law enforcement agency issues cautionary message, urging neoteric cybercriminals to promptly update their smartphone software.

The Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) has issued a warning to Android smartphone users regarding a recent surge in deceptive text messages. These messages trick users into clicking on software update notifications, allowing cybercriminals to steal their personal data.

The modus operandi remains similar to previous incidents, where users are deceived into installing .apk apps and granting various permissions. However, what makes this particularly alarming is the tactic of persuading users to click the installation button under the guise of a software update. This installation is disguised as an essential update, leading victims to believe they are upgrading their software. Disturbingly, victims cannot seek assistance from authorities or any relevant agencies.

Before updating their mobile software, Android users must exercise caution and remain vigilant. Currently, cybercriminals are sending messages requesting software updates, which subsequently grant them access to sensitive information stored on users’ mobile devices. Falling victim to this deceptive scheme can lead to significant harm. #Beware #SoftwareUpdate #CentralInvestigationBureau #CIB
