Cosmic Rays message a Hoax

The Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) would like to inform the public not to fall victim to the recently circulated hoax message of cosmic rays passing close to the earth. A similar message was first issued in 2010 and has since been spreading unnecessary fear.
 
The Authority confirms that no such information  has been released by either NASA or BBC concerning cosmic rays passing the earth causing harmful radiation through cell phones.
 
In this regard, the public is advised not to panic or pay heed to this and report any suspicious information to info.cac@aiti.gov.bn or contact us at 232 3232. The Authority also advises against spreading such false information to others.
