Beware of Fake Telegram Messenger Hacking PCs with Purple Fox Malware

Fake Telegram Messenger apps are currently hacking devices

including PCs, with a Windows-based malware that can put your information

at risk as it evades the installed anti-virus systems, cyber-security  researchers have warned.

According to a report by Minerva Labs, founded in 2014 by former officers of the Israeli Defence Forces

who served in elite cyber forces, fake installers of the Telegram messaging application are being

used to distribute the Windows-based 'Puple Fox' backdoor on compromised systems.
