Beijing time on the morning of January 9, according tomedia reports, South Korea’s most reliable source of news investigation Dispatch released a report shows that some front-line actors, idols, and even a famous chef, have been blackmailed by hackers. The hackers obtained the victims’ private data through a vulnerability in Samsung’s flagship Galaxy phone.
Once hackers have access to the celebrity’s phone, they can access data such as text messages, photos and videos on the device. After obtaining the personal data of the celebrities, the hackers demanded money. If the star refuses to pay, the hacker will make all the data public.
All K-pop fans know that Koreans don’t easily forget and forgive the star scandal. Once the stars find themselves in this situation, they don’t have much choice. As public figures, they have to pay hackers, or their careers will be in jeopardy.
The Dispatch survey found that all the celebrities who were blackmailed have one thing in common: Samsung, their phones are all under the same brand. (YongYong)
