Question is how govt knew that one of your device is infected? Were they spying on you already? Do you have any such app installed which monitor and send data to govt? Many more such questions may arise related to this?

In some other forum, the SMS turned out to be true. The receiver scanned all his devices and found one device having malware. In that case, Airtel Broadband had also alerted the user.

How about making sure that your phone is malware free? Maybe you installed some cracked apk files?

Site is genuine but it's false alarm. Need not take serious. But nothing wrong if we check with one more anti virus.

So, spywares on devices (phones, laptops) are real then.. 😯

They found out which of your devices got infected with malware + the linked phone numbers

May be, this is a trick to get their spyware installed on your phone 😛 (Some of the spywares remain undetectable via popular malware apps like pegasus)

Got sms and downloaded e scan  from google play store. And checked and it did not found any malware so uninstalled it. 

Even sms says the word probably. So it was false alarm.
