this is really not a good thing, this forum is meant to offer help and provide solutions to any issues or problems that anyone might be facing in the crypto currency community. now some people have decided to be manipulative and cause more harm by creating more problems and infecting peoples computers with malwares that seem to be a help to download wallet links. thanks for bringing this up. we all need to be more careful and do things with extra care especially now that there are too many bad people.

These malware's are very common on Telegram Telegram especially, just last week I fell for one and got every file on my phone wiped off, it was a very painful experience for me. I learnt my lesson though, it's just sad I had to learn the hard way. This post has gone a step further in preventing more people from falling.

Yeah, one comes across these malware's easily on Telegram and other similar platform, just be careful and look well before clicking on any link thrown at you on those platform. Most times they are out to cause harm

2FA does the magic for me, just that most times after battling with those malwares I end up losing very vital files, that will go a long way in hurting me to bits. So the best option still remains to stay safe, watch on links you click and the places you go on the internet

One has to be very careful here, it is even very possible to get your phone infected for days without you getting to know.

Ways to know that your mobile device infected.
You will realise that your device might suddenly begin to slow down tremendously, many malicious apps asking you to claim items you won will be popping from nowhere, app will keep crashing unexpectedly. Then funny and very strange sounds will begin to emanate from the said phone.

Here are some ways by which hackers could get your device infected

A) compromised apps: one very common way to get your device infected is downloading an application that was specifically designed for the said purpose (infecting your device), these hackers usually repackage and rebrand these applications, making it look like it is the original, once you download and install on your device, that's it, your device will be infected with whichever malware that was  
set up on it.

How to prevent it
Never download applications from random sources, always use a link from the official website of platforms that own the application. That way, you are guaranteed of downloading the real application.

B) Malvertising: this is another very common method used by hackers to steal personal information of users, it's done by making certain ads pop on the interface of targeted websites while surfing, the moment users mistakingly click on them, his/her device automatically get infected with the virus.

How to prevent it
Always avoid clicking on random ads, alternatively you can download ad blockers to help block off suck ads from popping while surfing the internet.

Trojans can still get to your android device via the Telegram application, because everyone has auto-loading of video, audio and documents in the default settings. My android tablet thus became infected with several different Trojans. Therefore, in the settings, disable autoloading of video, audio, photos, this will partially protect your phone.

 If the virus has a dynamic code + auto-update, then the ability to find it is reduced to 0. The only way to protect yourself - download data only from trusted sources.

One really need to be careful where he visits on the Internet like you said. A friend of mine lost tons of dollars very recently from his blockchain wallet. Hackers penetrated his defences and made away with over $2,000 dollars worth of btc.
2FA didn't help him here.
In my opinion, the site where your fund is kept matters a lot, especially if security measures are not taken into special consideration. Sometimes for those of us that trade on cryptocurrencies, we take unnecessary risk without being certain of their security measures.
I will always go with MPCX Platform with their recent partnership with IBM to ensure that digital assets are well-secured among others.

IBM is well represented and has a strong reputation in the IT industry. MPCX partnership with the IBM is a fantastic decision

That's true. I believe partnerships like such are very important for projects to do well. I read that IBM promises to provide MPCX with technology support and consultations to ensure stable performance & exceptional level of platform security.

This is a good one, the importance of platform security cannot be overemphasized. If every platform has to sign a partnership agreement to secure their platforms from hackers and cyber attacks, it would be awesome. We really need to do something about this security issue.

They've been several number of hacks in recent times that keeps me wondering on the potency of security systems on various exchange platform. I do hope that this partnership with IBM would give MPCX the needed potency to fight every intruder into the digital asset management platform which is still in motion.

IBM has been in business for a long time and possesses the several IT solutions, I firmly believe that IBM would be making a substantial impact in the MPCX project and that would cut across diverse ramifications for the success of the project.

I vehemently agree with you. Security breach has always been a worrisome issue in the cryptocurrency space. I remember the hack of the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world, that left the exchange with a loss of over 7,000 btc which is quite substantial and i don't think the exchange would have spent that much if they invested in robust security measures. MPCX really needs to learn from the mistakes of others and secure her platform maximally.

Concerning your escapade with MPCX do you have an idea of how long the tokensale would last? I know they've had several ICO's and tokensales in the past and was even thinking that the project has raised the necessary fund to commence the project development.

It's quite unfortunate that malware are also sent via telegram. I feel so scared because of the prevalence of telegram airdrop bots which has  been deployed by projects for the execution of airdrop, i only hope that the bots are not hijacked by hackers and used to take advantage of the phones of individuals.

The best advise I have for you is to be careful of the airdrops you join. Most of the airdrops are not legit and are just a simple strategy employed by hackers to take advantage of the information of airdrop hunters. it best to verify the authenticity of an airdrop from the official telegram of the project before participating.

Based on the information I read the tokensale would start on the 28th of June in two different exchange which are ooobtc and probit. The token sale would end on the 11th of July on probit and on the 14th of July on ooobtc exchange. The tokens would be sold for $0.06 on both exchange during the IEO sales.
