The notorious hacking group Anonymous has shared a little guide on Twitter, telling how to hack Donald Trump’s Android smartphone. The guide mentions that Trump’s Samsung Galaxy S3, which run Android 4.4, is outdated. It makes Galaxy S3 easily hackable using techniques like Stagefright. Notably, many security researchers have also pointed out this loophole in the past.
One of the major factors in the recent US presidential elections were the email leaks of Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta, which signaled the weak cyber security measures. Now, Donald Trump is himself a target of popular hacktivist group Anonymous
Anonymous doesn’t have much affection for the United States President Donald Trump. Given the absurd policies of Trump, this stance shouldn’t surprise anyone. The hackers have published a little guide
on Twitter, telling how to hack Donald Trump’s smartphone.
The notorious group claims that the President is an easy target to hacking attacks. Wondering why? Because he “refuses to use another smartphone other than the Galaxy S3.”
The group insists that using Stagefright, one can easily hack Galaxy S3 by “enticing Trump to click on a link.” To use Stagefright exploit to hack Trump’s phone, a hacker will need to make him download a crafted MMS containing a .MP4 file.
It should be noted that, in all likelihood, since taking office, Trump has been using a Samsung Galaxy S3 Phone. Many media reports have also noted that the standard Galaxy S3 received its last security update about 2 years ago. Thus, as Anonymous points out, it might be vulnerable to Stagefright.
