Then not even 10 minutes later I get a message that popped up saying I needed to install a new firmware update which already seemed awefully fishy anyways here it is below I took a screen shot ...
So is this firmware update even legit and how can I permanently make it disappear since there's no option to decline at All??????
We don't pay for it... we just connect from the people upstairs and that's who I suspect is behind this whole thing or is helping the hackers with the stingray by allowing them to install secret spy malware related apps :-/
What else can i do to make my phone more secure??? There must be more tricks or maybe even install some sort of firewall app but built for mobiles?????
I believe you may be misinformed about your situation. From what you’ve described, it does not sound likely that your phone has been hacked into.
“Stingray” is not a piece of software that is installed on a phone or otherwise. It is a piece of hardware that acts as a cellphone radio tower and is used to intercept phone communications within a certain area. It’s unlikely your neighbour has access to such equipment as it is illegal for ordinary citizens to operate such hardware. If an ordinary person were to use it, authorities can quickly determine when and where it is used because it would purposefully interfere with communications. In addition, as a “man-in-the-middle” communications interception tool, you would quickly know something is wrong because your calls and text would no longer work if they were intercepted by such a tool. To transparently intercept communications without the person’s knowledge, it would require collaboration with the mobile operators to intercept and forward the communications so as the person being monitored would not realize anything is going on. VERY unlikely your neighbour would get the cooperation of the mobile operator to spy specifically on you.
If you are illegitimately using your neighbours WiFi without their knowledge, it is possible that the neighbour can monitor and track your online activities. However, if you are connected to your neighbours WiFi without their knowledge, this indicates to me that your neighbours WiFi is open and not protected with a password. In that case, ANYONE in the area or within range of the WiFi can monitor and track your online activities. In fact, anyone connected to the neighbours open WiFi can be monitored and tracked. This is an incredible security oversight on your behalf to use an untrusted network that is not even password protected. As for your neighbour, they either do not care about their privacy, or has very poor security knowledge.
The firmware update is just coincidental and is legitimate. Get yourself informed and follow proper security practices to protect your privacy.
Provide me with the link to where you guys have seen that this firmware update is indeed legitamate. The file sizes aren't even the same on anything that I've seen when I searched for the update. It's not listed on samsungs official website on the updates page for my device name and model.
And FYI I happen to know alot about string ray and it's used by law enforcement whom can use it freely and without will on anyone they want to investigate so yeah that's whats going on here.
Again what has happened to make you think that a person or organization is using a stingray to target you?
You never did answer why you think that you've been hacked, if you let us know then maybe we can do xplain logical reasons for the things you think are signs of being hacked.
Here's where Koodo's future updates are posted but since it's passed when the update was issued the update isn't listed.https://community.koodomobile.com/koo...
