Hamas Tries to Hack Israeli Cellphones with Fake Rocket Warning App


Israel’s ClearSky Cyber Security warned today that Hamas is trying to hack Israeli cellphones through a fake version of the Code Red rocket warning app, Times of Israel reports.

“When you download the (fake) app it takes control of the mobile phone and allows the operator to track the device, take pictures, record sound and make calls and send messages,” said ClearSky CEO Boaz Dolev. Once the app took control of the phone it was impossible to remove, even if the app was deleted.

Dolev urged Israelis to exercise caution and only download apps from recognized stores.
