Limerick gardai issue warning to WhatsApp users

Gardai are advising users of the WhatsApp messaging service not to open or download any messages which they receive with the label “Martineilli”.

According to divisional Crime Prevention Officer, Sergeant Ber Leetch, any user who opens such a message may leave their devices vulnerable to being hacked. 

“Nothing will fix it,” she warned.
