A Chinese reporter posted a video of two Chinese men who posed as hackers, and a woman who allowed her phone to be bugged for the purpose of demonstrating how easily a phone could be hacked into and taken over, showing an alarming potential breach of privacy and grave danger in the hands of corrupt people.
“In China, a reporter scanned a QR code and downloaded an app. Then her phone can be monitored, remotely controlled to send messages, located, and tracked. The attacker can also secretly turn on her phone’s camera, shoot photos and videos, and transmit them to the attacker’s computer in real-time.”
The video is in Chinese and sub-titled into English.
A woman downloads a code for a coupon and then is shown by two men how they have taken control of her phone, without her knowledge and how they can get her data and even send texts to her contacts, that shows up from her phone number, but does not show on her phone.
The hackers also say that there is spyware, so that they can hear her phone conversations.
And they showed her how they could turn on her camera, and sneak a video of her, using both cameras, sending out live feeds, and they can send out the phone location, all at the same time.
