What iOS apps are grabbing your data, why they do it and what should be done

What iOS apps are grabbing your data, why they do it and what should be done | Apps and Widgets for any use, mostly for education and FREE | Scoop.it
Early last week the personal diary app Path became the fulcrum of a massive discussion about how cavalier mobile apps are getting with harvesting your, presumably, personal information. ...

 

Apps that do send data, with no warning

 

Foursquare stands alone here as an app that was, until an update issued on February 14th, sending personal data with no warning. This is similar to the previous behavior of Path that got it in so much hot water. Since the update, Foursqare now warns users before uploading data. Foursquare says that, while it was uploading the data, it was not storing it.

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.

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.

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.
