KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): All parties including government agencies must exercise caution when using the free online video conferencing application, said Bukit Aman Internal Security and Public Order Department director Datuk Seri Acryl Sani Abdullah Sani (pic).

He confirmed that the police had received a reminder letter concerning cyber threats.

"Police have received a reminder letter urging all government agencies to be vigilant of possible cyber-attacks,” he told a special press conference in Bukit Aman here Thursday (April 8).

He was commenting on a viral message on possible cyber-attacks on government agencies that were currently carrying out tasks online during the implementation of the movement control order (MCO).

Acryl Sani also confirmed that the police did not use the Zoom app for online video conferencing.

"I understand that this application is popular for online classes,” he said.

He also advised the public to be careful about making transactions online.

"At the same time, I would like to remind the people to never give out their personal information to third parties to avoid being victims of fraud,” he said. - Bernama
