Good news! A sim swapper gets caught … hopefully more good news later

Hello folks, we’ve got some good news around here, and I’m sure it’ll be worth talking about. Krebs on Security has the article Convicted SIM Swapper Gets 3 Years in Jail which is good. This is probably the hardest type of thing to detect, because a little bit of social engineering will yield the criminal the goods they want.

The simulated swapping happens because the number is ported from your account and over to one that the attacker controls Then they can do a lot of damage including taking control of your account access online.

This isn’t the only good news we have, but this will start the idea of good news as part of news coming out this week.

According to the article from Krebs, an Irishman was picked up, and Krebs isn’t the only one that covered this. Cyberscoop I believe covered this as well. Go ahead … check out the article … we need some good news!
