The following is the full text of the response:
At around 10 pm on June 26, we received feedback from some users that QQ numbers were stolen. The QQ security team attached great importance to it and immediately launched an investigation. It was found that the main reason was that the user had scanned the QR code for game login forged by criminals and authorized the login. The login behavior was hijacked and recorded by the black gang, and was then used by the criminals to send bad image advertisements. .
After confirming the reason, we immediately organized security technical forces to actively fight against black production. At present, the affected scope has been controlled, and the user accounts affected by this incident have also resumed normal use in the early hours of this morning.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused to users! At present, we are collecting and sorting out the criminal evidence of black production gangs, and we will cooperate with relevant departments to carry out work as needed to protect the legitimate rights and interests of the platform and users. Here, users are also reminded not to scan QR codes from unknown sources. When logging in to your account in an unusual environment, you should be more vigilant about your security to prevent the risk of account theft.
