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.
