Your Old Mobile Phone Number Could Compromise Your Cybersecurity

Such a risk could pose a threat to many users, as every time you change your mobile phone number, your carrier will recycle your previous number. They 'recycle' the number by assigning it to a new phone and corresponding customer. The carriers report doing this in order to avoid 'number exhaustion,' or a situation where all possible numbers have already been used for each mobile phone.

How to Defend Your Network Against TrickBot

 

According to the FBI and CISA, TrickBot is “a Trojan developed and operated by a sophisticated group of cybercrime actors.” It originally surfaced in 2016 to steal the banking credentials of unsuspecting victims.

As recently as March of 2021, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced that they have observed and are warning of ongoing TrickBot spearphishing campaigns in North America. This includes anticipated attacks on hospitals and healthcare systems rendered vulnerable as a result of the pandemic.
