It added: “We will share more information as soon as we can. Stay alert. In case of emergency call the police. We are taking a proactive measure with this warning while investigative processes are carried out”.

An elaborate phishing and hacking scheme was also revealed today by the Jewish Institute for National Security of America. It had been carried out by somebody claiming to be one of their employees they detailed.

Those responsible were determined by cyber experts to be working either for Iran’s IRGC or under its authorisation, they added. At this moment, it is unknown whether this is connected in any way to the FBI’s warning.
