THE Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) yesterday advised the public not to fall victim to the recently circulated hoax message of cosmic rays passing close to the Earth.
In a press statement, AITI said, “A similar message was first issued in 2010 and has since been spreading unnecessary fear among the public.
“The authority (AITI) confirmed that no such information has been released by either NASA or BBC concerning cosmic rays passing the Earth causing harmful radiation through cell phones.”
The public was advised not to panic or pay heed to the false message and report any suspicious information to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the AITI at 2323232.
The AITI also advised against spreading such false information to others.
