Certifi-gate, la faille qui ouvre les portes d'Android | MobileSecurity | CyberSecurity | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
L’éditeur CheckPoint dévoile une série de vulnérabilités dans les outils d’assistance à distance qui rendent des millions de terminaux Android vulnérables.

Android a été aux premières loges de la conférence de sécurité Black Hat qui se tenait la semaine dernière à Las Vegas. Après la faille Stagefright qui permet d’attaquer un smartphone Android à l’aide d’un simple MMS, c’est CheckPoint qui a tiré la sonnette d’alarme. Cette fois, le problème concerne les services d’assistance à distance installés par les constructeurs de terminaux, les RST (Remote Support Tools). Elle est donc indépendante de l’OS de Google en lui-même, même si ce dernier est concerné par ricochet.

Android malware spies on you even after phone is shut down | Mobile Security | CyberSecurity | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
A particularly devious new Android malware can make calls or take photos even if you shut the device down, according to security research firm AVG.


To achieve this, the malware hijacks the shutting down process — making it appear as though your Android device is shutting down. You see the animation, the screen goes black, but the phone is actually still on.

This week, we take a look at malware that pretends to be a helpful backup app and even managed to sneak into Google Play.


Of course, a marketplace as big and vibrant as Google Play changes quickly, so it's hard to pick out the trusted developers with so many up and comers. That's why we recommend installing security software on your Android device. Lookout has a strong offering, and I also recommend Editors' Choice winners Bitdefender Mobile Security and Antivirus and avast! Mobile Security & Antivirus. With one of these on your Android device, you'll be making it much harder for an attacker to get your personal information.

A study of 40 mobile commerce apps shows hackers are posting copies of retailers’ apps to secondary app stores, copies designed to capture and transmit confidential customer information that can be used to commit fraud.

90% of Android retail mobile apps and 35% of Apple iOS retail mobile apps have been duplicated and published to secondary app stores by hackers seeking to disrupt retailers’ mobile activities or collect confidential customer information that can be used to make fraudulent transactions, according to the Third Annual State of Mobile App Security report from Arxan, a web and mobile security technology firm. A secondary app store is any app store other than Google Play, the primary Android app store, and the Apple App Store, the primary Apple iOS app store.

The initial version used a unique encryption key for all victims, which allowed Avast to create a free removal tool for the unfortunate victims to use.

But that ship has now sailed, as Simplocker developers have upped the ante and the latest variant of the malware now encrypts files with a different key on each device.

According to Nikolaos Chrysaidos, Avast Android malware and security analyst, this new variant has already infected more than 5,000 unique users. They have been tricked into installing the malware by malicious ads on shady sites, as it poses as a Flash Player app.
