Fake Vaccination Certificates for India being sold on Telegram


Fake Covid 19 vaccination certificates and fake test results of 29 different countries, including India, are being sold on Telegram, a report by Check Point Research said on Thursday. According to the report, a fake vaccination certificate for India is available at a price of about USD75 (Rs 5,520) each. Oded Vanunu, head (products vulnerability research) at Check Point Software Technologies, said there are people who don't want to take the vaccine but still want the freedoms that come with being vaccinated such as access to places.

"These people are turning to the Darknet and Telegram. Since March 2021, prices for fake vaccination cards have dropped by half and online groups for these fraudulent corona virus services boast followings of hundreds of thousands of people.

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, in India, various state governments have mandated certain regulations for those undertaking inter-state travel by road or air to mitigate the further spread of the virus. Travelers are required to have a negative Covid-19 test result (RT-PCR report) or a vaccination certificate to visit some states that see large influx of tourists.

"In March 2021, the majority of the fake corona virus certificates were advertised on the Darknet. Now, CPR sees a majority of black market activity centered around Telegram. CPR suspects the shift to Telegram has helped sellers scale their distribution efforts, reaching more consumers, faster," the report said.

"Sellers mostly accept payments through PayPal and cryptocurrency (Bitcoin, Monero, Dogecoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and others). In some cases, Steam, Amazon, and eBay gift cards are accepted," the report said. It added that sellers list their method of contact as Telegram, WhatsApp, email, Wickr, and Jabber.

Information and Broadcasting Ministry Launches Account on Telegram for Fact-checking

The Union Information and Broadcasting Ministry on Tuesday launched its account on social media platform Telegram to counter fake news. It was launched as 'PIB Fact Check', which is one of the few government entities to have a telegram channel, and aims to verify information related to the Center and disseminate to its subscribers.

"Earlier, fake channels were being run on Telegram in the name of fact check. PIB, along with telegram, got these fraudulent channels removed," said ministry sources. PIB Fact Check is the only central government fact-checking arm, which was established in November 2019.

Telegram was fined about $120,000

The Russian court fined Telegram another $120,000. This is caused by the refusal to remove illegal content, which is subject to restriction in accordance with the law. Thus, the amount of fines imposed by Telegram in Russia for refusing to remove prohibited content amounted to $480,000.

Changing the Theme for Individual Chats - Telegram Beta

In Telegram for Android 8.0.1 Beta, you can change the theme for individual chats. In private messages, each participant can change the theme and it will change for both sides. In groups and channels, the administrator changes the topic for everyone. Chat participants and channel subscribers can also change the theme, but only for themselves, locally, for this you need to click on the service notification about changing the chat theme. At the moment, the theme changing button is only available in personal chats, but it doesn't change the theme due to server restrictions. It will be enabled closer to the release.

GIF Contest - Round 2 of the GIF contest starts now

Dates: 8 Sept - 8 Nov (23:59 Dubai time)
Prize fund: $50,000
Who can take part: Everyone! Even if you didn't participate in Round 1.

The task is similar: create between 10 and 100 GIF-style reaction videos examples here that express emotions similar to these emoji:

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜πŸ‘πŸ˜¨πŸ‘‹
😍😑πŸ₯³πŸ˜³πŸ™„
πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ˜­πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜
🀦🀷‍♂️πŸ˜πŸ€”πŸ˜’

πŸ’©πŸ€―πŸ‘πŸ˜±πŸ˜…
πŸ€πŸ˜žπŸ‘ŒπŸ’‹☝️
😈🧐🀣😒πŸ₯Ά
🀬🀒😴🀭πŸ’ͺ

In Round 2, you must create reaction videos from iconic and popular movies, series, cartoons, TV shows, etc. examples All reaction videos must meet the technical requirements below.

Technical requirements:

1. Format: MP4, no sound.
2. Aspect ratio: anything between 1:1 – 4:3 ✅ good examples.
- GIFs must not include stripes that make a widescreen video fit in the required format bad example.
- Sides must not be squished to fit the aspect ratio (bad example.
3. Max. duration: 5 seconds.
4. Image quality. Aim for top video quality ✅ good examples, ❌ bad examples.

- No grainy videos with noticeable pixelation, etc.
- No blurry, overexposed videos, etc.
- Cut content carefully: GIFs must not jitter animation too short or jump animation contains irrelevant frames.

5. Max. size: 300 KB. Aim for the smallest size necessary to maintain the level of quality described above (likely around 70-300KB).

6. On-screen text is not required. If you use on-screen text, you must use consistent fonts on all GIFs in your submission. Please keep your source files, because we may ask you to edit the text if your submission wins a prize.

7. Expressiveness and relevance to emoji. All GIFs must be relevant to their chosen emoji and express the emotion clearly. (If you're not sure whether the video shows πŸ˜‘,😑,πŸ™„ or 😳 – it's probably not a very good fragment).

We will explain how to submit your reaction videos later, stay tuned to @contest.

Reaction videos created in this contest will be watermarked with links to the public channels of their creators – and potentially suggested to Telegram users.

Good luck!
