SUPER HACK: 533 million Facebook users’ phone numbers and personal data have been leaked online!!!
A user in a low level hacking forum on Saturday published the phone numbers and personal data of hundreds of millions of Facebook users for free online. These were stolen in a 2019 hack that Fakebook knows about, but failed to mention to FB users!
The exposed data includes personal information of over 533 million Facebook users from 106 countries, including over 32 million records on users in the US, 11 million on users in the UK, and 6 million on users in India. It includes their phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, locations, birthdates, bios, and – in some cases – email addresses.
As a hacker has decided to publish this data publicly for free, one has to imagine the data has been available in hacker circles since it was snatched in 2019, and has been exploited thoroughly, so as to no longer have significant value on the black market. Every hacker who may have wanted it now has it. If you want to know where those spam calls, messages and emails come from, you should take a hard look at Fakebook.

Highest daily increase in intensive care patients in Andalucía for two months recorded: Andalucía on Good Friday, 2 April, recorded 1,032 coronavirus patients in hospital of which 267 are in an intensive care unit.
The number in an intensive care bed is 17 more than the day before and 23 more than seven days ago. The increase is the highest increase in daily figures since 30 January.
Despite the increase Andalucía remains below the peak of the third wave reached on 7 February (735), that of the second on 18 November (528) and of the first on 30 March, 2020 (439).

German experts say under 60s should not get second AstraZeneca vaccine: Germany’s vaccine commission, known as STIKO, recommended on Thursday that people under 60-years old who have had a first shot of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine should receive a different product for their second dose. “Until the appropriate data is available, STIKO recommends for people under 60 years old that instead of the second AstraZeneca dose, a dose of an mRNA-vaccine should be given 12 weeks after the first vaccine,” STIKO said. Messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccinations include those made by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna.

ANOTHER WhatsApp Scam!!! Warning Issued To British Expats As Fraudsters Pretending To Be Real Contacts Hack Phones: There are several versions of this scam. One goes like this, users receive a message from what looks like a legitimate delivery company, like Suer or UPS. The message says ‘not deliverable due to absence at home’. Now comes the ‘clever’ part, users are asked to swipe to resend the package and it is at this point that the hackers steal the data from the phone- everything!
-Another version goes like this- It starts with this text message that arrives on your phone out of the blue. Immediately after you get a WhatsApp message from someone in your contacts. The message reads ‘Hello, sorry I sent you a 6-digit code by SMS by mistake, Can you transfer it to me please? It’s urgent.’
-What has actually happened is your friend’s account has been hacked. Scammers are now trying to hack all their contacts. You are one of them. They are trying to set up WhatsApp on a new device with your number. WhatsApp acknowledges this and sends a 6-digit authorisation code to your mobile phone by SMS. The scammers now try and get you to forward it to them by pretending to be a friend of yours. If you send them the code, your WhatsApp will be hacked.
-What do the hackers gain? If all goes well for the hacker they can now easily steal your identity. How?
A successful hack provides them your contacts list, passwords to everything you ever logged into (bank, gov’t accounts, cloud accounts, etc!), photos, address, etc, the lot.
The National police have sent out warnings to everyone in the public domain but ex-pats are being left out from receiving these warning alerts.

Covid-19- Italy returns to strict lockdown for Easter: Italy has entered a strict three-day lockdown to try to prevent a surge in Covid-19 cases over Easter.
All regions are now in the “red zone” – the highest tier of restrictions – as the country battles a third wave, with about 20,000 new cases a day.
Non-essential movement is banned, but people are allowed to share an Easter meal at home with two other adults.
Churches are also open, but worshippers are being told to attend services within their own regions. Full article: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-56621342


Bank commissions of up to 240 euros, in which cases are they inappropriate?: Although banks are free to decide what services they offer to their customers and to set fees and surcharges, there are cases where the amounts of the commissions are subject to limits and also, they cannot be applied without order or measure. Therefore, a commission is considered to be undue when the entity does not provide the service charged, if the client did not request the service or renounced it and also in the event that an amount is charged that exceeds the agreed rates.
After the strong increases applied in 2020 to less connected clients, the cost of maintaining an account it now goes from 67 euros to 240 euros in some cases. To this amount, the rest of the commissions must be added, such as those that apply to cards or certain transfers.
