WhatsApp victime d'une grosse faille de sécurité

WhatsApp victime d'une grosse faille de sécurité | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
L’application pour smartphones ne protège pas les messages qu'elle envoie. Les intercepter est un jeu d'enfant.

 

Problème: WhatsApp est très facile à pirater. C’est le site allemand ComputerBild qui tire la sonnette d’alarme, soulignant que l’interception des SMS est un véritable jeu d’enfant.

 

Une application Android téléchargeable sur le net permet d’intercepter les messages des smartphones connectés à un même réseau wi-fi. Le danger de se faire espionner est donc particulièrement grand dans les lieux publics, bistros et autres, qui proposent un réseau gratuit à leurs clients.

Vorsicht: Tausende iPhone-Apps mit Sicherheitslücke | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
Security-SuperGAU für alle Nutzer von iPhones und iPads: Experten haben eine Lücke in iOS-Apps entdeckt, die es erlaubt, die komplette Kommunikation über fremde Server umzuleiten. Tausende Apps sollen betroffen sein.

 

Über HTTP Request Hijacking sollen sich Hacker in iOS-Apps einschleichen und so den Datentraffic über eigene Server umleiten können. Nach erfolgreichem Angriff soll die Umleitung dann permanent aktiv sein.

 

===> Einzige Abhilfe schafft ein Update oder eine Neuinstallation der App. <===

Android-Schädling geht auf Shopping-Tour

Android-Schädling geht auf Shopping-Tour | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
Die Sicherheitsexperten von G-Data haben einen neuen Android-Schädling entdeckt, der selbstständig kostenpflichtige Apps herunterlädt.

 

G-Data empfiehlt zum Schutz von solchen und ähnlichen Schädlingen die Installation einer Sicherheitslösung auf dem mobilen Gerät. Außerdem sollte das Gerät und die darauf installierten Applikationen immer aktuell gehalten werden, um so auch vor bereits bekannten und geschlossenen Sicherheitslücken geschützt zu sein. Grundsätzlich sollten Apps nur aus vertrauenswürdigen Quellen heruntergeladen und installiert werden. Dazu zählen etwa Google Play und die Marktplätze der Hersteller.

 

In diesem Artikel finden Sie weitere Tipps, wie Sie ein Android-Gerät absichern können:
