WhatsApp accounts’ verification codes are being phished in Finland
Information security now!
WhatsApp accounts’ verification codes are being phished in Finland. It is important that WhatsApp users recognise phishing attempts of verification codes sent by SMS and protect themselves against phishing attempts by starting to use two-step authentication. A successful hijack attempt leads to the takeover of the WhatsApp account, in which case the attacker continues to attempt phishing on the contact information of the hijacked account. Never share your own WhatsApp verification code with others.
