IMDA finding out obligatory sign-up with anti-SMS spoofing registry for all organisations

SINGAPORE – The Infocomm Media Growth Authority (IMDA) is contemplating making it necessary for all organisations to hitch the Authorities’s anti-SMS spoofing registry to register the names they need to use to ship SMSes and shield them from misuse.

This comes within the wake of scams that resulted in practically 470 OCBC Financial institution clients dropping at the least $8.5 million to fraudulent fund transfers in December. Scammers had spoofed the financial institution’s title to ship faux SMSes with phishing hyperlinks to victims.
