Here’s how scammers can get into your cellphone — and what you can do about it

Kinda on point, but I wanted to make fun of:

Using a public charging port at an airport is like “finding a toothbrush on the side of the road and deciding to stick it in your mouth” Caleb Barlow, vice president of X-Force Threat Intelligence at IBM Security, recently told Forbes .

:clap: :clap: :clap:

I would expect no less an X-treme X-ample from someone crushing it at IBM.


Adam X quotes, “Teeth can be damaged by several factors including poor oral hygiene, but also by wrong oral hygiene.”

Anyhow, don’t use a phone, or you will be scammed.

Using a mobile device is like “lighting a short fuse to a nuclear bomb strapped to each of your loved ones and deciding to stick it in your mouth” maiki interi, director of vertical acquisition and octagonal integration at RichClowd, recently told talkgroup.

They should educate people on how to set their phones to “charge only” when over USB. Instead of demanding that people feel dirty when theyve forgotten their charger or powerbank.
