Etisalat, du to block SMS spam
Mohamed Al Ghanim, director-general of the UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has said that spam SMSs that broadcast files to be downloaded by the mobile holder are considered a hacking tool, and that subscribers are advised not to accept such files. He said that Etisalat has already provided a service to block spam messages, while Du is working on a similar solution. ‘We advise subscribers not to give their phone numbers to entities and parties that are unknown to them,’ he added.
