    Warning: AT&T texts can be faked to hack you

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — There’s a problem with the way AT&T sends out customer alerts via text message: They’re too easy to mimic. With little effort, a scammer could send you alerts that look just like the real thing.

But instead of email, hackers can target you with texts. The problem stems […]
