Malicious Olympic 2012 Android apps spotted

Malicious Olympic 2012 Android apps spotted | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it

 

Webroot researchers have recently spotted an app that supposedly shows users aggregated 2012 Olympics news, but also harvests their contacts list, reads their text messages, and collects information about the device's ID and location.

 

The app is called “London Olympics Widget”, and has a digital certificate claiming it was developed in New Delhi, India, making it pretty obvious that it's not the official London 2012 mobile app.

Microsoft unleashes Windows attack tool-for Apps developpers

Microsoft unleashes Windows attack tool-for Apps developpers | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it

Microsoft explains the tool’s powers thusly:

 

Attack Surface Analyzer looks for classes of security weaknesses Microsoft has seen when applications are installed on the Windows operating system, and it highlights these as issues. The tool also gives an overview of changes to the system that Microsoft considers important to the security of the platform, and it highlights these changes in the attack surface report.

 

Some of the checks performed by the tool include analysis of changed or newly added files, registry keys, services, Microsoft ActiveX controls, listening ports and other parameters that affect a computer's attack surface.

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:

Using iPad for reading is something we all enjoy doing; but what about when reading articles in a foreign language ? It is highly probably that you will come across vocabulary you don't know. Of course you might guess the meaning of words from the context in which they are used but this can never replace a clear and definite explanation of a dictionary.

 

To help you find translations of the new words you come across, I compiled a list of some of the best free iPad translator apps. Check them out :

Mobile applications especially streamline and render (somewhat) less painful all the little stressors of college life, making them an ideal choice for the tech-savvy schools out there striving for meaningful relevance. Because the format offers some pretty potent potential, many included some features to make themselves stand out from the other mobile applications out there.

 

Whether they get experimental and creative with the expected offerings or veer off into a specialty section, the following official college presences on iPhones, Androids, and the like deserve some extra attention.

Die Sicherheitsexperten von G-Data haben einen neuen Android-Schädling entdeckt, der selbstständig kostenpflichtige Apps herunterlädt.

 

G-Data empfiehlt zum Schutz von solchen und ähnlichen Schädlingen die Installation einer Sicherheitslösung auf dem mobilen Gerät. Außerdem sollte das Gerät und die darauf installierten Applikationen immer aktuell gehalten werden, um so auch vor bereits bekannten und geschlossenen Sicherheitslücken geschützt zu sein. Grundsätzlich sollten Apps nur aus vertrauenswürdigen Quellen heruntergeladen und installiert werden. Dazu zählen etwa Google Play und die Marktplätze der Hersteller.

 

In diesem Artikel finden Sie weitere Tipps, wie Sie ein Android-Gerät absichern können:

WhatsApp victime d'une grosse faille de sécurité

WhatsApp victime d'une grosse faille de sécurité | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
L’application pour smartphones ne protège pas les messages qu'elle envoie. Les intercepter est un jeu d'enfant.

 

Problème: WhatsApp est très facile à pirater. C’est le site allemand ComputerBild qui tire la sonnette d’alarme, soulignant que l’interception des SMS est un véritable jeu d’enfant.

 

Une application Android téléchargeable sur le net permet d’intercepter les messages des smartphones connectés à un même réseau wi-fi. Le danger de se faire espionner est donc particulièrement grand dans les lieux publics, bistros et autres, qui proposent un réseau gratuit à leurs clients.
