Lou Salza's curator insight, May 13, 2013 5:11 PM

Let's encourage all our kids to own and tell their stories! We begin by telling stories we learn from others, then we start making up our own. Next we tell our story to ourselves and those we love. When we construct the narrative of our journey we gain agency over our days, our experiences and our lives. Tell your 'own' story to 'own' your life! This is the very definition of self advocacy.--Lou

Don't you just love mobile apps? So do malicious code writers | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
There are some surprising numbers available that tell a dark story about mobile apps and what they can be doing on your device.

 

By now you've read about malicious apps that leak privacy data, but do you realize how serious it really is? If not, you'd better pay attention to the following statistics gathered by Symantec*. And if you think that Google Play is 100% safe, it isn't. I have some data that yields some shocking results about the number of malicious apps waiting to grab your data.

How mobile spammers verify the validity of harvested phone numbers

How mobile spammers verify the validity of harvested phone numbers | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it

By Dancho Danchev

 

Have you ever received a blank call, and no one was on the other side of the line? What about a similar blank SMS received through your mobile carrier’s Mail2SMS gateway? There’s a high probability that it was a mobile spammer who’s automatically and efficiently verifying the validity of a recently harvested database of mobile numbers, with QA (Quality Assurance) in mind.


These verified databases will be later on used as the foundation for a highly successfulspam/scam/malicious software disseminating campaigns, thanks to the fact that the cybercriminals behind them will no longer be shooting into the dark. How do they do that? What kind of tools do they use?

Marc Bown, SpiderLabs managing consultant at Trustwave Asia-Pacific, agreed, saying mobile apps are not protected from the vulnerabilities of the OS.
