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.

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.

Your Data for a Donut: The Price of Paying With Your Phone

Your Data for a Donut: The Price of Paying With Your Phone | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
Dunkin’ Donuts launched its mobile payment app today as retailers race to take control of the ways we pay with our smartphones.

 

Dunkin’ Donuts’ new mobile payment app released today lets you set up an account and pay by scanning an on-screen barcode at the checkout counter. As with Starbucks’ popular mobile app, the system works like a glorified gift card. You can add money to your account by feeding the app your credit card information, and in the case of the Dunkin’ Donuts app you can send gift cards to friends. The Starbucks app tracks your purchases and rewards frequent buyers with free drinks.

 

In both cases, the user experience doesn’t exactly qualify as revolutionary. The convenience factor is about equal to using a physical gift card or a credit card. Such apps are most convenient for retailers themselves, who for the first time can advertise to customers via the same technology those customers are using to pay. Stores can tighten this retail feedback loop even further by creating a record of a single customer’s purchases in perfect detail, and even by tracking a customer’s physical location to send them an ad or a deal when they get close to the front door.

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.

Apps for multiple intelligences | ipadders.eu | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
What makes the iPad brilliant is that it caters to all different intelligences. In fact most apps touch upon all different types of intelligences. I've tried to match all of my favorite educational apps with their corresponding intelligences.

 

For those apps that matched with more than one, I’ve used equivalents. For example, Showme and Educreations are interactive whiteboard apps that have got the same functions and both fit in the Visual and Aural box. Just like I don’t believe all students fit only in one intelligence box either. All skills need to be developed and the iPad especially makes it do easy to jump from one to the other and more importantly incorporate the different intelligences.
