Can hackers use Good Morning videos, pictures and messages to hack your devices, and steal your data?
Find out what is happening, and what the FACTS really are!
Claim : Hackers Are Using Good Morning Messages To Hack You!
This post about Chinese hackers using Good Morning videos, pictures and messages to hack your devices, has gone viral on social media and WhatsApp.
It’s a long message, so skip to the next section for the facts!
Dear friends, please delete all welcome photos and videos in Good Morning format and the like. Read below the article to the end, which will be clear why I ask about it. From now on I will only send personally prepared greetings.
Read it all !!! Send this message urgently to as many friends as you can to stop the invasion.
Olga Nikolaevna Lawyer: Caution:
For those who like to send Good Morning pictures! Good day! Good evening!
Do not send these “good” messages.
Today, Shanghai China International News sent SOS to all subscribers (this is the third reminder) that experts recommend: please do not send good morning, good night, pictures and videos,.
Reports show that hackers in China designed the images, the video is so beautiful to hide the phishing codes inside them, when everyone sends these messages, the hackers use your devices to steal personal information, such as bank card information and data to crack the phone.
It has been reported that more than 500,000 victims of fraud have already been deceived.
If you want to greet others, write your own message to protect yourself and your family and friends.
Important! Delete all greeting messages and pictures that you have on your phone for your own safety. If someone sent you such a picture, immediately remove it from the device. Malicious code takes time to deploy, so if you act immediately, no harm will be done.
Tell all your friends about this to prevent hacking.
Greet others by writing your own words, and send only images you create. The material you create yourself is completely safe.
Please understand me correctly! All have credit cards attached to their phone. Everyone has a lot of contacts in their phones. You will create a threat not only to yourself, but to all the contacts that you have on your phones, your friends and acquaintances.
Many of get spammed with Good Morning or Good Night messages every day from family and friends.
While they often clog up Facebook, Telegram and WhatsApp groups, they really do NOT allow hackers to hack your devices.
Here are the reasons why Good Morning messages are very irritating but harmless…
Fact #1 : Shanghai China International News Does Not Exist
The news organisation, Shanghai China International News, that was stated in the hoax does not exist.
Fact #2 : Hackers Do Not Design Good Morning Pictures + Videos
Hackers (from China or anywhere else) have better things to do than to create these Good Morning pictures and videos.
In fact, they are mostly created by websites and Facebook pages for people to share, and hopefully attract new followers.
Fact #3 : No Fraud Involving Good Morning Messages
There has been no fraud involving Good Morning or even Good Night messages, videos or pictures.
Certainly, half a million victims of such a scam would have made front page news. Yet there is not a single report on even one case.
Fact #4 : Image-Based Malware Is Possible, But…
Digital steganography is a method by which secret messages and other data can be hidden in digital files, like a photo or a video, or even a music file.
It is also possible to embed malicious code within a Good Morning photo, but it won’t be a full-fledged malware that can execute by itself. At most, it can be used to hide the malware payload from antivirus scanners.
In January 2019, cybercriminals created an online advertisement with a script. The script itself would appear innocuous and pass any check.
However, the image itself has an “almost white” rectangle that is recognised by the script, triggering it to redirect the user to the cybercriminals’ website.
Once there, the victim is tricked into installing a Trojan disguised as an Adobe Flash Player update.
Fact #5 : Malicious Code Executes Immediately
If you accidentally download and trigger malware, it will execute immediately. It won’t wait, as the hoax message claims.
Deleting Good Morning or Good Night photos or videos will free up storage space in your phone, but it won’t prevent any malware from executing.
Also, most malware require some sort of action to trigger their execution. Generally (but not always), just downloading a malware won’t trigger it.

Please watch out for the COVID-19 Relief Fund by Federal Government scam!
Find out why it is just aSCAM, and WARN your family and friends!
Scam Alert : COVID-19 Relief Fund By Federal Government!
People are now sharing this COVID-19 RELIEF FUND message on WhatsApp :
Apply For The Covid-19 Relief Fund Provided By The Federal Government. Hurry Up, It takes few seconds to apply. Dont [sic] miss this opportunity.
Note : I added the Scam Alert overlay to prevent it from being further abused.
COVID-19 Relief Fund : Why This Is A Scam
I know many of us are in dire straits during this COVID-19 pandemic, having lost jobs, income or even loved ones. Unfortunately, scammers are counting on our desperation to prey on us.
I will now show you why this COVID-19 Relief Fund message is just another scam. Please warn your family and friends!
Fact #1 : No Global Relief Fund By Any Federal Government
When a scam tells you that “the federal government” is giving away money, you should always ask yourself – WHICH federal government???
No government in the world is giving away money to anyone across the world. Not even the three richest economies in the world – US, China and the EU – have a COVID-19 relief fund to give money away like that.
Fact #2 : The Three Questions Are A Red Herring
Most of these scams employ simple but useless questions to trick you into thinking that this is genuine. Look at the three questions this scam is asking :
What’s your age range?
How much money do you want to receive?
What’s your employment status?
In a real government relief programme, your eligibility status will be based on some official document – your identity card, driver’s licence, passport, etc.
No one is going to give you money simply because you answer a few questions. And NO ONE is ever going to ask you how much you want to receive!
Fact #3 : No Government Will Ask You To Invite Friends / Groups
A real government relief programme will NEVER ask you to invite friends and groups on WhatsApp, much less insist that you invite 15 friends or 5 groups before they give you money.
That’s a dead giveaway that this is a scam, and the scammers want you to help them scam other people. So NEVER invite your friends to join the scam.
Fact #4 : SNF Global Relief Initiative Is Not By Any Federal Government
To make the scam look legit, the scammers used the SNF Global Relief Initiative for the COVID-19 Pandemic graphics.
That initiative is not by any government, but by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
And just in case you are wondering, no, the SNF does not give away money to individuals. They only make grants to non-profit organisations and collaborative funds.
Fact #5 : The Domain Is New + Protected
If you check the domain “relief-fund.live“, you will see that it was only created on 24 March 2021.
Even more suspiciously, all contact and ownership details have been REDACTED FOR PRIVACY. That’s often a sign that the owners are worried about being sued or prosecuted.

Fact #6 : The Comments Are Completely Faked
You may notice a bunch of comments at the bottom of the scam website. They are only there to trick you into thinking that other people received the money.
Try refreshing them. They will never change, unlike a real live comment stream. The time codes will not change either.
Try clicking on the Like option. Nothing will happen. Your Like will not register.
That’s because this is a fake comment stream. It’s all hardcoded and fixed.
Now that you know that this is just another scam, please warn your family and friends.
And please remember – no one gives away money like that. Don’t fall for these scams!

These Facebook seafood scam pages have a simple modus operandi :
offer online seafood delivery at very attractive prices and even free delivery
advertise on Facebook to reach out to people, and avert Facebook’s ire
ghost you after you deposit money into their bank accounts
delete your negative comments on their Facebook page
Even though many people reported Ocean Sense and East Malaysia Seafood Agent as scam pages, Facebook declined to take action and they are STILL ACTIVE.
Seafood Scams On Facebook : How To Detect Them!
The problem with seafood scams on Facebook is how easily scammers create them. Even if they get banned by Facebook, they will simply create a new one.
Facebook also partly enables them to continue with their scam by ignoring reports, claiming that there is nothing on the scam pages that go against their Community Standards. Duh – as if the scammers will post on Facebook admitting that they are scammers.
So how do we detect these seafood scams on Facebook?
Step 1 : Check List Of Reported / Confirmed Seafood Scams
The first thing you should do is run a quick search online on the name of the seafood vendor. See if anyone has reported them to be a scam.
Confirmed Seafood Scams On Facebook
Multiple people have reported that these Facebook seafood vendors have cheated them :
Yesterday we discovered that we have become a victim of a targeted cyber attack, due to which some of our internal systems have been compromised.
An unidentified actor gained unauthorized access to our internal network, collected certain data belonging to CD PROJEKT capital group, and left a ransom note the content of which we release to the public. Although some devices in our network have been encrypted, our backups remain intact. We have already secured our IT infrastructure and begun restoring the data.
We will not give in to the demands nor negotiate with the factor, being aware that this may eventually lead to the release of the compromised data. We are taking necessary steps to mitigate the consequences of such a release, in particular by approaching any parties that may be affected due to the breach.
We are still investigating the incident, however at this t time we can confirm that – to the best of our knowledge – the compromised systems did not contain any personal data of our players or users of our services.
We have already approached the relevant authorities, including law enforcement and the President of the Personal Data Protection Office, as well as IT forensic specialists, and we will closely cooperate with them in order to fully investigate the incident.
Telegram just highlighted the ability to migrate WhatsApp chats to their app, but you really should NOT do that.
Find out why this is a BIG security and privacy risk than just leaving your chats in WhatsApp!
Telegram : Moving Chat History From WhatsApp, Line + KakaoTalk
In a recent version 7.4 update for their iOS app, Telegram announced a new feature – the ability to move your chat messages from other apps like WhatsApp, Line and Kakaotalk to their app.
Curiously, that ability has actually been part of WhatsApp since 2018, when they introduced the ability to export chats to email and other apps.
And while this feature is purportedly available only with the iOS version of Telegram Messenger, you can already do that with existing versions of WhatsApp and Telegram.
Why You Should NOT Move WhatsApp Chats To Telegram!
You should note that the privacy risks with WhatsApp have been grossly exaggerated by the media and many Internet “experts”.
For one thing – WhatsApp users have been sharing metadata with Facebook since September 2016, a fact initially lost on many media outlets and “experts”.
But we understand the fear – Facebook is a real snoop. Even so, it would be a mistake to migrate from WhatsApp to Telegram.
Let us share with you why you should NOT migrate from WhatsApp to Telegram, and why it is a BIG mistake to migrate your WhatsApp data to Telegram.
Fact #1 : Telegram Is LESS Secure Than WhatsApp
WhatsApp fully implemented end-to-end encryption across all of their apps and network since 5 April 2016.
End-to-end encryption prevents WhatsApp or Facebook from reading your messages. Only the sender and receiver(s) can read them.
WhatsApp shares a considerable amount of data and metadata that Facebook can use to identify and track your movements and activities. But not the content of your messages.
Telegram, on the other hand, has STILL NOT implemented end-to-end encryption for all messages by default.
Instead, they still insist on offering end-to-end encryption only when you create a Secret Chat.
This leaves the bulk of your messages completely readable by Telegram and anyone who intercepts those messages as they travel from your device through the Internet to the recipient.
The very presence of Secret Chats between certain people is itself metadata that can help oppressive regimes identify their enemies or whistleblowers.
Fact #2 : Your Data Is Stored In Telegram Cloud Servers
All WhatsApp data is stored only in your registered device. WhatsApp also does not retain messages in their servers after they are delivered, and will only store files (like photos and videos) and undelivered messages for 30 days.
It’s the opposite with Telegram – all of your data – messages, photos, videos, documents – is stored in their cloud servers. Even though they are encrypted in storage, Telegram holds the encryption keys, NOT YOU.
This ability has its advantages like convenient access across multiple devices, but it also makes Telegram less secure.
Telegram has access to your encrypted files, including the ability to decrypt them for authorities that legally compels them to do so.
Fact #3 : Moving Your Messages + Media To Telegram Exposes Them
While your chats and media remain within your WhatsApp app, they are encrypted and not available to anyone but yourself (and the recipients).
Migrating your chat messages and media to Telegram would involve sending them unencrypted to Telegram’s servers.
This exposes your hitherto secure chats and media to a man-in-the-middle attack – allowing a third party to snoop or grab a copy of the data as it travels unencrypted to the Telegram servers.
Fact #4 : Facebook Already Has Your Metadata
As we pointed out earlier, WhatsApp has been sharing our metadata with Facebook since September 2016.
So moving your existing chats out of WhatsApp won’t limit or reduce your exposure. That horse has long bolted from the stable.
Moving your chat history and files to Telegram will just offer a new attack surface for cybercriminals and oppressive regimes.
Fact #5 : Facebook Will Still Have Your Data If You Still Use Facebook!
Here is the other thing that people don’t realise – migrating from WhatsApp to another messaging app is pointless if you do not also stop using Facebook.
As long as you still use Facebook, they will still have access to a consideration amount of metadata. Losing your WhatsApp metadata just gives them less metadata.
After all, Facebook can track your movements and activity even if you are NOT on Facebook! This is what they call Off-Facebook Activity.
Many websites are claiming that WhatsApp is forcing us to share our data with Facebook in February 2021.
Find out what’s going on, and what the FACTS really are!
WhatsApp Sharing Data With Facebook : What’s Going On?
We wrote about this earlier, but it looks like many websites (including very influential ones) are still peddling the claim that WhatsApp is going to force us to share data with Facebook in February 2021.
No, WhatsApp Is Not Forcing You To Share Data With Facebook
Fact #1 : It Has Been A Requirement Since September 2016!
Back in August 2016, WhatsApp announced that they would start sharing data with Facebook. At that time, they gave existing users 30 days to opt-out.
This was a one-time offer that has never been repeated. Since then, every new and current user MUST agree to let WhatsApp share data with Facebook.
Fact #2 : WhatsApp Will Still Honour The Opt-Out
If you are a WhatsApp veteran who opted out of data sharing in August 2016, WhatsApp will still honour that opt-out.
Fact #3 : WhatsApp Will Share MORE Information With Facebook
So while they DO NOT need your permission to continue sharing data with Facebook, they still need your permission to SHARE MORE data with Facebook.
This is the list of additional data that we must agree to let WhatsApp share with Facebook :
Status Information. You may provide us your status if you choose to include one on your account. Learn how to use status on Android, iPhone, or KaiOS.
Location Information. We collect and use precise location information from your device with your permission when you choose to use location-related features, like when you decide to share your location with your contacts or view locations nearby or locations others have shared with you. There are certain settings relating to location-related information which you can find in your device settings or the in-app settings, such as location sharing. Even if you do not use our location-related features, we use IP addresses and other information like phone number area codes to estimate your general location (e.g., city and country). We also use your location information for diagnostics and troubleshooting purposes.
User Reports. Just as you can report other users, other users or third parties may also choose to report to us your interactions and your messages with them or others on our Services; for example, to report possible violations of our Terms or policies. When a report is made, we collect information on both the reporting user and reported user.
Fact #4 : WhatsApp + Facebook Cannot Read Your Messages
WhatsApp finished implementing end-to-end encryption on 5 April 2016, about 4.5 months before instituting the requirement to share data with Facebook.
Since then, WhatsApp nor Facebook can no longer read your messages, as they are encrypted. Only the sender and receiver(s) can read them.
WhatsApp shares a considerable amount of data and metadata that Facebook can use to identify and track your movements and activities. But not the content of your messages.
Fact #5 : Telegram Is Less Secure!
For those who are fleeing to Telegram, you should note that Telegram does not encrypt messages (only Secret Chats).
In fact, all of your data – messages, photos, videos, documents – are stored in Telegram servers. Even though they are encrypted in storage, Telegram holds the encryption keys, NOT YOU.
In contrast, WhatsApp data is only stored in your devices. WhatsApp also does not retain messages in their servers after they are delivered, and will only store files (like photos and videos) and undelivered messages for 30 days.
WhatsApp will, however, store the time and date of the messages you send and receive.
Fact #6 : Signal Is The Most Secure Alternative
Those who want a more private and secure messenger should opt for Signal, instead of Telegram.
It offers end-to-end encryption using the open-source Signal protocol, the same protocol which WhatsApp uses in its own proprietary format.
On top of that, it offers a Sealed Sender feature which prevents everyone – including Signal – from knowing the sender and recipient of a message.
But best of all, Signal does not share your data with any third-party company. In fact, the only metadata it collects is your phone number, and even that is not linked to your identity.
That said, Signal lacks features found in WhatsApp and Telegram, so we cannot call it the best alternative, only the most secure alternative.

How To Help Tiffany Dover With These Fake Death Claims
Creating and sharing fake death claims about Tiffany Dover isn’t about “having an open mind” or “just investigating the truth” or “exploring the possibilities“.
This is literally cyberbullying!
And it doesn’t even stop with fake death claims. People are also hounding her family and friends, calling them fake or crisis actors.

According to the NewsChannel 9 ABC crew who recorded the whole event on 17 December 2020, Tiffany Dover quickly recovered, and within minutes, was able to get up and speak with them again.
While antivaxxers are claiming that she subsequently died, those are complete lies. She did NOT die.
Her hospital – CHI Memorial – posted this tweet two days later, confirming that she is well, asking that people give her and her family privacy.
UPDATE: Nurse Tiffany Dover appreciates the concern shown for her. She is home and doing well. She asks for privacy for her and her family.

Vitaly Kamluk, Kaspersky Director of Global Research and Analysis for APAC, explores the impact of social media activities on our digital reputation, as well as those of brands and companies!
Digital Reputation : What Is It?
Digital reputation is the online version of good old fashion reputation. The only difference is that it is defined by our online behaviour and what people are saying about us, or the brand.
In short, our digital reputation is a combination of our digital footprint, and the impact it has on how other people perceive us, or the brand.
As the world becomes more connected, digital reputation is becoming more than just important – it is now critical to the future and success of any individual or corporation.
This has led to a shift in how people and brands behave online these days…
As Jesmond Chang, Head of Corporate Communications for Kaspersky APAC, shared above :
32% of social media users in APAC use anonymous accounts
50% of social media users in APAC avoid companies that are involved in a scandal, or had received negative news coverage online
40% also stopped using a company’s or brand’s products once they are embroiled in some kind of online crisis.
Kaspersky on APAC Digital Reputation Threats!
At the 6th Vitaly Kamluk, Kaspersky Director of Global Research and Analysis for APAC, shared the latest threats to digital reputation in the APAC region, which is precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“One of the most visible effect of this pandemic is how it forced everyone, from individuals to the biggest companies, to shift a lot of their activities online.
This dependence, triggered by our need to secure our physical health, also pushed us to increase our social media use, either to connect with our distant loved ones, to give support to our community, to entertain ourselves, or to get hold of products and services that we need.
Parallel to this trend is the opening of wider doors for cybercriminals to exploit”
With many employees working from home, cybercriminals have found new ways to exploit this situation :
brute force attacks on database servers increased 23% in April 2020
Malicious files planted on websites increase 8% in April 2020
Network attacks and phishing emails also rose
Kaspersky themselves reported an increase of unique malware samples from 350,000 per day pre-COVID, to 428,000 per day!
With the increased reliance on online services, including remote work and learning, e-commerce purchases and a greater adoption of e-wallets, the 2020 threat landscape appears to favour cybercriminals.
The viral infographic claiming that the PKPD for eight states and federal territories in Malaysia was just extended to 3 January 2021 is FALSE.
Take a look at what just went viral on social media, and why it is just fake news!
Claim : PKPD in Malaysia Extended To 3 January 2021?
This was the infographic that went viral on social media today, 3 December 2020. We added the FALSE overlay to prevent further abuse.
It claimed that the PKPD (Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Diperketatkan) or EMCO (Enhanced Movement Control Order) for these eight states and federal territories in Malaysia was just extended to 3 January 2021.
PKPD In Malaysia Extended To 3 January 2021 : FAKE NEWS!
That infographic is fake and was edited from previous infographics released by the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN).
For the Doubting Thomases of the world who always ask, “How you know?”, here are the facts why…
Fact #1 : There Is No PKPD / EMCO Of Any State In Malaysia
There is no PKPD or EMCO covering an entire state or federal territory in Malaysia.
Only PKPB (Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan Bersyarat) or CMCO (Conditional Movement Control Order) exists for these seven states or federal territories :
North : Penang, Perak
East : Terengganu, Kelantan
Central : Selangor, Kuala Lumpur
South : Negeri Sembilan
Fact #2 : Labuan Is A Federal Territory
Labuan is always listed as WP Labuan in government infographics, because it is a federal territory, like Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.
Fact #3 : The Government Has Debunked It As Fake
The Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) has just publicly debunked the infographic as fake (with our English translation).
