ATHENE researchers give advice on the television programme arte Xenius

In a recent episode of the science television programme arte Xenius called "Cyber­sicher­heit - Wie wir Hacker­angriffe vermeiden", Dr. Steven Arzt of Fraunhofer SIT gives advice on how smartphone users can protect themselves from data piracy and hacker attacks on their devices. A healthy degree of alertness, as well as frequent updating and attention to approving access rights are essential. When buying a used smartphone, it should be reset to its default settings before the first use.
