F-Secure hat mit Younited einen eigenen Cloud-Speicherdienst ins Leben gerufen.

Lokki sends you automatic notifications when family members or friends enter or exit certain places — but only if they decide to let you know. Plus you can hide your whereabouts whenever you want to go undercover, or just take a nap.

The Instagram Scam That Tricked 100,000 Users Into Giving Away Passwords

The Instagram Scam That Tricked 100,000 Users Into Giving Away Passwords | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
An app called InstLike promised free likes and followers on Instagram, but asked users to provide their usernames and passwords, turning them into a botnet.

 

Moreover, a user would get 20 free Likes if he used the hashtag #instlike_com in his own photo captions. A search on Instagram reveals that more than 500,000 photos already contain that hashtag.

 

All these features made InstLike a sophisticated ecosystem that employed thousands of voluntary "zombie" accounts — but it depended on their naiveté and willingness to give up their passwords.

 

For Narang, who is experienced in the realm of social media-based scams, the sheer volume of people involved is scary.

83% Of Mobile Apps Are Risky

83% Of Mobile Apps Are Risky | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
Summer 2013 App Reputation Report to examine the hidden behaviors behind free and paid mobile apps

 

The cloud-based, fully automated Appthority App Risk Management Service performed static, dynamic and behavioral app analysis on the 400 most popular free and paid apps on the iOS and Android platforms.

 

  

Appthority analyzed each app for particular behaviors within a test environment

.

Highlights from the App Reputation Report are:

 

- Overall, 83% of the most popular apps are associated with security risks and privacy issues.

 

- iOS apps exhibited more risky behaviors than Android apps. 91% of iOS apps exhibit at least one risky behavior, as compared to 80% of Android apps.

 

- 95% of the top free apps and 77.5% of the top paid apps exhibited at least one risky behavior.

 

- 78% of the most popular free Android apps identify the user's ID (UDID).

 

- Even though Apple prohibits its developers from accessing the UDID, 5.5% of the tested iOS apps still do.

 

- 72% of the top free apps track for the user's location, compared to 41% of paid apps.

 

- Although paid apps already generate revenue when downloaded, 59% of paid iOS and 24% of paid Android apps still support in-app purchasing.

 

- Furthermore, 39% of paid iOS and 16% of paid Android apps still share data with ad networks.
