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.

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.

Airdrops is actually a risky venture owing to the fact that one needs to consistently input personal information into forms and this may be used by the hackers or bots to get out passwords. Its always good to be very sure and very careful carrying out airdrops task.

I read the OP on this thread and after reading it, I though then who can I trust.  And I better be very careful about any link I click because if I understand it, THAT is the only way to get a malware.  Funny but after reading the OP,  a few post down were links on post.  One saying I am going to add this to the Black list. My first reaction is don't click on that link it could be Malware.

So how do we know if a link is good or not.  And how do we know if it is not a very sophisticated Malware.

Is there anything we can do?  Bitcointalk is a great asset.  I hate to see this happen. 

Perhaps the idea I posted in another thread about creating an OPTIONAL membership called Verified Member might be a great solution.  This way if you select the options and are verified through some sort of quasi KYC/AML method of verification it would give those reading the post a better assurance that the posts, the information and, if there are links, knowing the links are safe.

This is to say,we should be mindful to whatever link we click or download. Sophisticated malware virus pop-up like a link and cause more damage you could ever think. It's very terrible for such to experience such stuff here. We should report when we see one

Just a quick one.... Who here have heard about the Sparta Token Project with just 300 tokens total supply? Isn't that revolutionary? Try and research about that project and thank me later!

yes you are right 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.

When I was engaged in collecting various viruses and I want to tell you that these are not the most common actions of viruses that are aimed at holders of cryptocurrencies.

Incredible! The information is very complete and valuable, the truth is that cybercriminals seek different methods to scam people and generate problems, we must be very attentive.

This is so sad. I think a solution to this would be a good project to recommend, not a typical AV but an anti-virus specifically designed to combat this problem or minimize the risk

You also avoid save any file from telegram which comes in form spreadsheer, zip or exe formats these are all malwares used by hackers to steal private informations, or compromise your wallets.

I know about this and I often try to stay safe, I don't download apps directly from playstore, I always try to get a direct link from the website or something of that sort

Crypto is a target for many hackers lately and one of the ways they infiltrate is by use of malwares, stay safe and be wary of sources of certain files before downloading

It is indeed a never ending fight.If there are ways that had already been disclosed and being avoided or completely knowns,these scammers does continue to create new ways to scam or hack people with all possibilities that's why our own experience and common sense is the main weapon to avoid these things.

never install or download any app from unknown sources
No. 1 basic rule but people do still fail to follow this one.

These con artists are continually getting the hang of, getting to be more astute and increasingly refined. Be cautious consistently. Download just from authority locales and consistently check where the connection drives you will go.

I always use antivirus and anti malware as sometimes antivirus doesn't catch the malware or backdoor programs.

After reading this valuable material, I fear that even downloading applications and wallets from official sources can lead to malware or hidden mining. After all, a seemingly worthy project can actually turn out to be fraudulent. You have to be very careful.
