SMS spam threat targets Apple fans

SMS spam threat targets Apple fans | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

AdaptiveMobile today sheds light on the extent of a new global SMS spam threat. According to Ongoing Threat Analysis (OTA) which examines mobile security threats from around the world, consumers should to be on the lookout for fraudulent spam texts informing them they have won a free Apple product such an iPad, iPhone or MacBook.

The texts frequently include a web address that looks like it is from Apple but upon closer inspection is not a legitimate Apple website and are sent from US mobiles numbers (+1-XXX-XXX-XXXX).

“Congratulations! You are Australia’s WINNER OF THE DAY! Go to http://www.apple.au.[redacted].com to claim your prize. Must claim within 24 hrs.”

“Your phone was randomly chosen as Apple’s Over-Stock iWinner. Go to http://ie.appleoverstock.[redacted] & type code 2872 to win your Free Gift-Card now!”

Five months on and iOS 8 is still riddled with show-stopping bugs

Five months on and iOS 8 is still riddled with show-stopping bugs | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it

Five months on from the release of iOS 8, and following six rounds of bugfixes, Apple's flagship mobile platform that powers almost three out of four iPhone and iPads is still riddled with bugs.


I'm just going to come out and say it - this is a mess. If we were talking about cosmetic stuff like a badly laid out user interface or poor selection of wallpapers then I could overlook the issues, but they aren't. These are bugs relating to core systems such as Wi-Fi, cellular connectivity, Bluetooth, and stability and performance.

These are show-stopping bugs. These are bugs that quite frankly should have been sorted before iOS 8 was released, and definitely should have been pinned down after the first couple of updates.

But they aren't.

Threat Intelligence: Reduce the Gap | CyberSecurity | Privacy | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Major cyber security incidents continue to hit the headlines. Security and privacy are top concerns for IT and security professionals, especially after 2014’s highly publicized data breaches.

Companies around the globe were victim to malware, stolen data and exploited vulnerabilities. Big companies weren’t immune to this, with Target, JPMogan Chase, Home Depot and Sony Pictures suffering the painful sting of data breaches. Even celebrities were targeted, with compromised iCloud accounts.

It really isn’t surprising that almost everyone anticipates the need to prepare for security challenges in the coming months. According to a recent survey by Tech Pro Research, 84 percent of IT professionals are more concerned about security and privacy in 2015.

Apple is pushing out a mandatory update for Adobe Flash in the wake of the recent disclosure of three zero-day vulnerabilities that are actively being exploited in the wild.

Mac OS X will find that Flash has been disabled on their devices and will see popup messages urging them to install the latest updates if they want to continue to use the software.

“If you’re using an out-of-date version of the Adobe Flash Player plug-in, you may see the message ‘Blocked plug-in’, ‘Flash Security Alert’ or ‘Flash out-of-date’ when attempting to view Flash content in Safari. To continue viewing Flash content, update to a later version of Adobe Flash Player. Click the Download Flash button. Safari opens the Adobe Flash Player page on the Adobe website,” the advisory from Apple stated.

Not surprisingly at all, web browsers continue to have the most security vulnerabilities because they are a popular gateway to access a server and to spread malware on the clients. Adobe free products and Java are the main challengers but web browsers have continuously topped the table for the last six years. Mozilla Firefox had the most vulnerabilities reported in 2009 and 2012; Google Chrome in 2010 and 2011; Internet Explorer was at the top for the last two years.

To keep systems secure, it is critical that they are fully patched. IT admins should focus on (patch them first):

Once compromised, infected Macs could leak data and open a backdoor for further abuse.

Now, sadly, a variant of OpinionSpy seems to be making something of a comeback.

Kaspersky Lab Survey Finds Mac and PC Users Encounter Similar Cyberthreat Risks | CyberSecurity

Kaspersky Lab Survey Finds Mac and PC Users Encounter Similar Cyberthreat Risks | CyberSecurity | Apple, Mac, iOS4, iPad, iPhone and (in)security... | Scoop.it
Woburn, MA – February 10, 2015 - According to the Consumer Security Risk Survey conducted by Kaspersky Lab and B2B International, Apple users responded to have encountered cyber threats almost as often as the users of other platforms. The survey showed that 24 percent of Apple desktop users and 10 percent of Apple laptop users encountered malware during the year*, whereas the number of affected PC owners is slightly higher at 32 percent.  

Although security experts have not, thus far, found as much harmful software for OS X as they have for other platforms like Windows, malware does still aim to attack Mac devices. Malware such as ransomware was reportedly faced by 13 percent of Mac users compared to 9 percent of Windows users. There is a similar situation with threats targeting financial data: these incidents were reported by 51 percent of OS X users and 43 percent of Windows users.

In addition the survey results showcased that Mac users are generally less aware of Internet threats than Windows users. For example, 39 percent of MacBook owners have never or hardly heard of ransomware, and 30 percent do not know about dangerous malicious programs that can exploit vulnerabilities in software. By comparison, among all respondents 33 percent know almost nothing about ransomware and 28 percent are unaware of exploits.
