Android Architecture and Pen-testing of Android applications

Android Architecture and Pen-testing of Android applications | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

Android, as we are all aware, is a Linux-based operating system which was initially developed by Android Inc. and was later purchased by Google. It was designed for touch screen devices like smartphones, tablets, cameras, set-top boxes, etc… and has reached the hands of millions of consumers.

 

Over a period of time, operating systems like Windows and Linux have matured against threats, thereby diverting the hackers towards newer targets like handheld devices. Millions of Android applications are downloaded from the Google Play store by users, thereby exposing end users’ email ids, banking details, sensitive details and messaging content due to insecure coding practices.

 

The users are either unaware or trust the apps to protect their sensitive data against theft.

Spyware Takes Over iPhones, Androids

Spyware Takes Over iPhones, Androids | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

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.

BlackHole Will Get More Complex, Android and Mac OS Are Prime Attack Targets

BlackHole Will Get More Complex, Android and Mac OS Are Prime Attack Targets | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

"Attackers have expanded their attacks beyond the Windows platform to include Mac OS X and Android. 27 Percent of All Cybercrime Linked to the ‘Blackhole’ Exploit Kit", Sophos said.

 

Even though the overall market share for Mac OS X remains small compared to other platforms, the number of Mac threats are growing as more users switch. Flashback, the malware that reportedly infected hundreds of thousands of Apple systems in April was the largest mass attack this year, but it's not the only Mac malware out there. In a typical week, SophosLabs detects 4,900 pieces of OS X malware on Mac computers.

 

===> In a snapshot of Mac malware detected over a one-week period in August, SophosLab detected various variants of fake antivirus, codecs and Flash player. <===
