The title is little bit threatening for the cell phone users that their devices are not as secure as they think. Hackers can hack your cell phones and they can even clone to their needs. This is disclosed by a US cell phone user, her name is Anita Davis, she said that her monthly bill is more than three thousand dollars, but she didn’t make any calls that can cost her as much bill as 3,000$.
According to her, she doesn’t know anyone in countries like Pakistan, Israel, Jordan, Africa, even she doesn’t know anyone outside her native country. After receiving the bill she directly called her mobile provider which is T-mobile. She is customer of T-mobile for more than six year.
As a response, mobile provider told her that the calls are made directly from her device. After the research it was concluded that Anita’s phone has been hacked and it was cloned as well.
You guys must be thinking about the cloning? Well, I can define it as: Hackers get your SIM card information just by scanning the airwaves. This may happen anywhere in the world, any cell phone can be a victim of cloning. Hackers can use an interceptor, hardware and software to record your SIM card and they make your cell phone to call anywhere in the world.
Meanwhile you guys are advised to stay safe, and if any of you get anything odd like more bill than the expected, then you must contact your SIM provider as soon as possible. Have a look at the video below to stay safe.
