Suspect hacker calling residents

A warning has been issued about a suspected computer hacker who has been calling residents on the Isle of Man.

Identifying himself only as "Mark", he does not state a surname or a company, but says he is phoning regarding a complaint of slow internet connection.

He then asks the computer user to give him remote access by typing in logmein123.com.

The instructions should not be followed and people should contact their service provider, police have said.
