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.

50 Smartphone Apps Every Teacher Should Know About | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it

We cover many of these apps (and why you should know about them) in our latest issue of the Edudemic Magazine. It’s all about the technology needed for when you head back to school. Check it out here! The following is a cross-post from our content partners at Online Colleges

 

Mobile phones managed to mostly kick their classroom stigma once the iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and other PDA-cellular hybrids (also known as “smartphones,” but you knew that already) popped onto the scene.

 

Thanks to the veritable Library of Alexandria of apps available on the respective markets, life can run that much smoother for professionals of all types. And that, of course, includes teachers.

This makes Google Translate for Android one of our most intelligent and machine learning-intensive apps.

 

Speech recognition, handwriting recognition, OCR, and machine translation all rely on powerful statistical models built on billions of samples of data. Here’s how it comes together:

Introducing BeSeen - Web Wise Kids

Introducing BeSeen - Web Wise Kids | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it

BeSeen is provided by Carnegie Mellon University and Web Wise Kids to teach youth how to be responsible in social networks by securing their private and personal information, protecting their online reputation and defending their peers.

 

This online safety mobile application is a single-player game that simulates a social networking website. The player creates a profile and starts earning “friend” characters and interacting with them. They learn about others through their posts and help them through challenges in order to win awards and make new friends.

 

In BeSeen, the ultimate quest is to make friends. At first, that is a matter of getting involved in school activities, but as more friends join a social circle, they bring their problems with them.

To keep friends and make more, it’s important not only to be involved but to be a good friend. Who is up for the challenge?

 

Web Wise Kids' President Judi Westberg Warren discusses how their BeSeen app, like Web Wise Kids' other games, teaches youth ===> how to think critically about the decisions they make online and on social networks. <===

FinFisher trojan for iOS and Android sighted

FinFisher trojan for iOS and Android sighted | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
Mobile variants of the commercial FinFisher trojan target BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Symbian, Android and iOS devices.

 

The commercial FinFisher FinSpy spyware trojan was created by Gamma International, and its development is believed to take place in Germany. The company sells its trojan toolkit – which is thought to currently support all major operating systems including Linux, Mac OS X and Windows – to governments for use by security agencies. Until now, relatively little was known about the mobile variant of the trojan.


Based on the available code samples, Citizen Lab is convinced that the mobile trojans it analysed are a mobile variant of FinSpy. The trojan is believed to be capable of monitoring rooms through silent calls, downloading files, tracking a user's location, and forwarding phone calls, SMS text messages and emails. FinSpy can also apparently intercept BlackBerry Messenger messages. The trojan typically infects smartphones via specially crafted emails.


The iOS variant requires iOS 4 or later and is executable on all iPad models, on iPhone 4 and 4S devices, and on third and fourth generation iPod Touch devices. The app installs in the background, downloads further code, and injects this code into the startup routine, anchoring itself deep into the system. The researchers found "FinSpyV2" references in the binary. As the binary contains a valid developer certificate and an ad-hoc distribution profile, iOS devices accept it without the need for a jailbreak. The certificate was issued to Martin Münch – the managing director of Gamma International's German subsidiary.

The Resource for Education Technology Leaders focusing on K-12 educators.

 

Smart phones are an incredible educational tool for both educators and students. I have an Android Smart Phone and I can do pretty much everything with it that I can do on my computer or laptop or tablet. This means that I always have access to my data, files, information, and can do work anywhere. Students have the same ability with their smart phones. They have access to information, class resources, and so much more at any time. Instead of buying a $200 graphing calculator, they can buy a $0.99 app. There are tons of great apps out there for educators and students to use.

 

Here are some mobile / smart phone apps and resources for students and teachers:
