After the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) warned banks and customers against the use of AnyDesk App, the Union Bank is also warning its employees about the same. In personal messages to Union Bank employees, the bank has informed, “Do not download “ANYDESK” from Playstore or any other source, which Fraudster can use to take control of your mobile device and carry out transactions.
You may receive a phone call from a fraudster, who will claim to be a representative from a tech company/bank offering to fix issues in your smartphone or mobile banking apps.
The fraudster will then lure you to download a mobile app like 'AnyDesk' from Play store or App Store, which can provide him with remote access to your mobile.
Post the installation of the app (in this case 'AnyDesk'), a 9-digit code will be generated, which the fraudster will ask you to share.
Then the fraudster will further ask you to grant him certain permissions. Once granted, the fraudster is now in control of your mobile device.
Further, Mobile Banking credentials and PIN are vished (stolen) from you and the fraudster can now choose to carry out financial transactions from your mobile app which was already installed.
The fraudsters also forward one SMS to you and advise you to forward it to a specific mobile number from your phone. On the basis of this, the fraudster is able to link/register your mobile number/account with UPI on his own mobile device.
The fraudster subsequently seeks confidential account related credentials like Debit Card number, PIN, expiry date, OTP and sets the MPIN which is then used to authenticate transactions.
Sometimes, the fraudsters could also send “Collect request" to your VPA and ask you to approve/authenticate it on the respective UPI apps to get reversal/refunds. Assuming that you will get credit/refund in your account, you approve the request by authenticating the transaction with MPIN [which is only known to you] but you might end up losing money since your account gets debited once the collect request is approved/authenticated.
Do's and Don’ts you should follow:
Be alert to fraudulent calls (vishing) that ask you to download apps or share confidential information (disconnect such calls immediately)
In case you have already downloaded “AnyDesk” app and it is no longer required, uninstall it
