MITM attack 0506 number?

Hi all,

I had a silent call from  a number starting with 0506.....

I googled the number (whole number: 0506 8614379) and hit upon the info that this was a re-call to a MITM attack.

I diverted the number to my 1572 list.

Here my question:

Does anybody know more about this/these number(s) and what is an MITM attack and am I protected by and through Plusnet?

 

Thanks

Jule

Hi there, 

 

Google has quite a lot of info on MITM attacks: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man-in-the-middle_attack

 

It's an online attack similar to a DOS so don't worry this isn't something that could affect you over a phone call. 

 

We do provide a "call protect" service in case this continues to be an issue: https://www.plus.net/help/phone/stop-nuisance-calls/
