Polda Metro Reminds Public of APK Fraud Method Under the Guise of SPP, JAKARTA – Polda Metro Jaya reminds the public regarding fraud using documents (files) with the Android Package Kit (APK) extension under the guise of Police Summons (SPP) sent via the WhatsApp (WA) application.

This was the statement made by the Kabid Humas of Polda Metro Jaya, Kombes Pol Ade Ary Syam Indradi last Friday, (12/4).

“The public should always be careful about fraud using the mode of receiving APK ‘Files’,” said Kombes Pol Ade Ary.

He said, if people experience this and are harmed, they should immediately report it to the nearest police station.

For your information, previously there was a post circulating on X’s social media regarding fraudulent documents with APK extensions uploaded by the @ibnux account. In the upload, @ibnux was sent a message via WA by number 0813-8027-2083 which used a profile photo of the Polda Metro Jaya symbol containing the message “Polda Metro Jaya Call Letter”.

“On this Fitri day, i was called by the Police Cyber ​​Team,” wrote the account.

Cyber ​​Security Expert, Bruce Hanadi said, that currently there are many cases of fraud using APK documents using various methods such as wedding invitations, package couriers, traffic tickets and BPJS bills, all of which are dangerous because they can hack personal data and drain accounts.

According to him, malware can be packaged in any form, including APK, PDF, XLS, JPG, BMG and others.

“The first aid for device users who have already clicked on a link containing a virus APK document is to change all keywords or passwords,” he said.

He also explained, that if this method is sent via WhatsApp, the WhatsApp password must be changed as soon as possible. This also includes email, cellphone passwords and e-banking passwords.

Bruce Hanadi also explained how hackers work in hacking information. By clicking on the APK document link, the system will automatically send a number of data to a certain server, including the password for later hackers to try to hack.

“One of the rescue efforts is to change the password as soon as possible,” he said again. (Bembo)
