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.

Google Translate’s App Now Instantly Translates Printed Text In 27 Languages | Word Lens

One of the most intense experiences you’ll ever have is visiting a country that speaks a language different than yours. There’s a host of tools you can use, but Google’s Translate product has leapfrogged just about everything out there over the years.

Its most handy, and impressive, tool is the six-month-old instant translation feature, using the goodies from the acquired Word Lens, that lets you point your camera at something written in another language, say a sign, and it’ll translate into your language with ridiculous accuracy in almost real-time.

Durch zwei Sicherheitslücken war es möglich, Webseiten zu erstellen, die ungefragt beliebige Android-Apps aus Google Play installieren. Die erste Lücke ist eine alte Bekannte: Die Webbrowser-Komponente von Android bis einschließlich Version 4.3 ist anfällig für das sogenannte Universal Cross-Site-Scripting (UXSS). Dadurch kann eine bösartige Webseite eine beliebige andere Website fernsteuern. Die Angriffsseite könnte etwa einen Webmail-Dienst in einem unsichtbaren Frame laden und auf die Mails des Opfers zugreifen – vorausgesetzt, das Opfers ist bei dem Dienst eingeloggt, wenn es die bösartige Seite aufruft.

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.

Improved Simplocker variant hits Android users hard | Mobile Security | CyberSecurity | Apps

Improved Simplocker variant hits Android users hard | Mobile Security | CyberSecurity | Apps | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
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.
