Spyware Takes Over iPhones, Androids

Spyware Takes Over iPhones, Androids | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
DFI News Digital Forensic Investigator is a multi-media resource for digital forensic professionals working in academic, government, law enforcement, and corporate settings.

 

Call it Invasion of the iPhone Snatchers: a new FinFisher-based spyware is built to infect iPhones and iPads (and Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone gadgets too) in order to take over the device completely — all unbeknownst to the user.

 

The smartphones and tablets will innocently appear to be themselves, but in reality the mobile malware is working in the background to track the device’s location, monitor activity and intercept communications including emails, voice calls and text messages.

Don't you just love mobile apps? So do malicious code writers

Don't you just love mobile apps? So do malicious code writers | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
There are some surprising numbers available that tell a dark story about mobile apps and what they can be doing on your device.

 

By now you've read about malicious apps that leak privacy data, but do you realize how serious it really is? If not, you'd better pay attention to the following statistics gathered by Symantec*. And if you think that Google Play is 100% safe, it isn't. I have some data that yields some shocking results about the number of malicious apps waiting to grab your data.

 

===> Unfortunately, the playing surface for Internet naughtiness has changed in the past couple of years and you need to know that it's only getting worse. <===

Oh dear - the world of technology seems to be one step forward two steps back but these issues are important especially of we are going to be using mobile devices in education and promoting BYOD approaches.

Android malware - the more things change...

Android malware - the more things change... | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it

If you think Android phones are immune from malware, listen up: you need to protect yourself. A recent exploit that stole personal data shows why. 

 

There are a few anti-malware apps for Android, including Norton Antivirus & Security, and McAfee Mobile Security among others. Those can help, but they won’t catch everything.

 

To really be secure, you also have to pay attention to the permissions an app is looking for when you’re installing...if a game is looking for access to your contact list, think twice before accepting. But in some cases, even that isn’t enough, because this particular exploit didn’t even ask for permissions.

 

===> Ultimately, you should be trying to only get apps from trusted sources. <===

 

And you should always try to check around to be sure that an app is safe before installing it on an impulse. Just the same what you used to do (or should have done) on your PC.

 

The more things change…
