Indian Army Warns, Chinese Hackers Targeting WhatsApp To Steal Information


Chinese Hackers are trying to hack WhatsApp and steal your personal data.


Army advised users to be vigilant and urged them to conduct regular audits of their groups to see if any number starting with +86 had joined a group.

"The Chinese use all kinds of platforms to penetrate your digital world. WhatsApp groups are a new way of hacking into your system.

The Additional Directorate General of Public Interface (ADGPI) said the Chinese were penetrating the digital world.

Chinese numbers starting with +86 barge into your groups and start extracting all the data," says the video, tweeted from the army's official handle.

In case you change the SIM, destroy it completely,” the video said. It went to add that information mined from such groups was being leaked to Chinese hackers

"Stay cautious, stay alert, stay safe!


It is not the first time that China are using digital technique for information gathering. We have reported earlier Baidu Apps are Spying personal data and Leaked Information, Chinese Selfie App Is Spying On Your Smartphone.

  1. Indian Army has alerted around 17 March , 2018 that Chinese could steal or take away information from WiFi users in India, urging that more care may be exercised. This piece of alert looks to be corresponding to the one this Vedic astrology writer had brought out last year on 19 October , 2017 , in article - “ Astrologically speaking , some highlights for India in coming year 2018” - published at theindiapost.com , simultaneously at wionews.com on 19 October , 2018. The text on the point in the article reads as :-
    “ (1) Mid-March to 31 May 2018. ……………Communication systems including cyber could also be in focus for concern”. So concern is in focus just about mid- March and has obviously conveyed concern.
