MCMC & Telcos asked to stop unwanted SMS

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and telecommunication companies (Telcos) have been asked to find a way to tackle SMS spamming.

Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said the two parties were given two months to find the best solution besides taking legal action.

“We certainly do not welcome the utilisation of veiled pornography, veiled gaming within SMS. We have seen so many kinds of SMS that should not appear on our telephone.

“We can do this under the law but we would rather let telcos and MCMC do their work,” he said.
