Fake Telegram App Stole User Data

A phishing attack on Telegram users has been identified and stopped by the Iran Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Center. A report published by the CERTCC details the attack by cybercriminals. Since Jan. 30, a message titled “Telegram Voice & Video Call Service” was sent to users that would guide them to a phishing website. Phishing is a fraudulent practice when cyber criminals, purporting to be from reputable companies, attempt to trick someone into giving information over the Internet or provide access to an electronic device. The website encouraged users to download a fake version of Telegram messaging app “with more options and access to Telegram’s voice and video call services”.
