Ever wondered how you get tons of spam messages in the phone. Wonder from where these messages come from?
Well Webroot has found a recently released DIY phone number harvesting tool. So anyone can set its own rule and can use the tool its own way. Means they can choose the country to attack and can go area specific. They can collect the numbers specific to carriers. And no users can do anything about such attacks.
So what you as a user should do? Don’t give your phone details on any website unless its financial or e-commerce website. And cross check the website before clicking on any links.
