The man explained as he was sitting in his San Francisco home office in October 2018 when he observed that the bars or network coverage on his phone had disappeared and his cellphone no longer has coverage. A few hours later, he realized that a sum of $1 million has been moved. Ross is the casualty of a SIM hack, an attack that transpires when the hackers get unrestricted to your phone number by making a transfer to a SIM card they can control. By taking over Ross’s phone number, a hacker gained access to his email address and eventually his life-savings, Ross said when he was interviewed by CNN Business.
