07.30.15 Stagefright Vulnerability
You may be hearing about the Stagefright vulnerability in the news. Stagefright is vulnerable to a remote
code execution bug, allowing hackers to potentially infiltrate devices and access private information by sending a SMS message with a video in it.
If you use an Android device as a security best practice, we recommend that you temporarily disable Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). Disabling MMS will prevent media files from being sent to a device. Text
messages and hyperlinks should continue normally. A description of the steps necessary for disabling MMS is available at: https://www.twilio.com/blog/2015/07/how-to-protect-your-android-device-from-stagefright-exploit.html
If you have questions about availability of a patch for your specific device or disabling MMS, you should contact your carrier.
07.07.15 CO-OP Mobile Text Phishing Scam
It has been brought to our attention that there is a CO-OP Mobile text phishing scam that credit unions are experiencing. This fraudulent attempt to capture account information is done with an automated SMS/text message referring to themselves as CO-OP Mobile.
The text message requests members to enter their account information (including ATM PIN number). Members should avoid clicking links within the text messages and not respond to these messages that request account information.
CO-OP Mobile SMS/text Messages do NOT ask members for account information
including ATM PIN numbers. Members that may have felt they have responded to this scam should change their password as well as their PIN immediately.
