Re: NBC: All Visitors to Sochi Olympics Immediately Hacked

The second link shows that they didn't get hacked, they deliberately installed malware on the phone and computers. They went to a website on the phone and downloaded a malware infected apk, opened an email attachment on the PC and on the Mac went to a website that asked to install an "antivirus program" which they went ahead and did.

Shameless sensationalist reporting by NBC.

That's what keeps this forum a vibrant community.
A healthy mix of 'noobs & experts' & everything else in-between being able to quickly come to conclusions that other 'security spaces' wouldn't see even it hit them on the head.
