FBI warns of massive cyberattacks and advises abandoning personal smartphones at the 2022 Olympics

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has warned of massive cyberattacks during the upcoming Winter Olympics in Beijing. The agency encourages athletes and other members to leave their smartphones and other smart gadgets at home and instead use temporary devices to protect themselves from potential cyber threats and data theft. The National Olympic Committees of some countries are also advising their athletes not to use personal smartphones at the upcoming Olympics due to cybersecurity concerns.

The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games have been associated with a large number of cyber incidents. The FBI notes that NTT, the event’s official service provider, recorded more than 450 million cybersecurity attempts, but none were successful.

According to the agency, the most popular attack methods included malware distribution, phishing, disinformation, fake websites and streaming services. Mobile apps and digital wallets that track COVID-19 vaccination status can also allow cybercriminals to steal personal information or install tracking tools, malicious code or software.

NTT officials told ZDNet in October that the company’s fight for cybersecurity during the Tokyo Olympics was similar to Harry Potter’s final battle with Voldemort, calling the effort to protect the event “herculean.”

Passport data, demographic information, and medical/travel history on medical customs forms are also suspected to be vulnerable, according to Citizen Lab.

Mid-month updates like these are rare for Samsung, so the company is believed to have found something to fix as soon as possible rather than waiting for the June security patch to be released in a couple of weeks.

If you have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 based Galaxy S22, S22+, or S22 Ultra and haven’t received an update notification for that device yet, you can check it manually by going to Settings > Software Update.
