Belkin WeMo flaws could allow remote control of home electronics | Internet Of Things

Belkin WeMo flaws could allow remote control of home electronics | Internet Of Things | Ciberseguridad + Inteligencia | Scoop.it
Researchers at IOActive discovered the vulnerabilities in Belkins WeMo home automation devices.

 

Belkin's website advertises four WeMo home automation devices, which allow users to manage a number of home electronics, including light switches, heaters, fans, lamps or stereos. After downloading WeMo apps compatible with Android and iPhones, users are able to remotely control or monitor devices while out of the house.

 

The WeMo Insight Switch, for instance, sends information to users about energy usage of home devices, like A/C units, TVs and washing machines.

 

“The vulnerabilities found within the Belkin WeMo devices expose users to several potentially costly threats, from home fires with possible tragic consequences to the simple waste of electricity,” the Tuesday release from IOActive said.

 

The firm also added that other attacks, impacting users' computers and mobile devices, could be scaled via the WeMo flaws.

Use Android? You’re Probably Giving Google All Your Wifi Passwords

Use Android? You’re Probably Giving Google All Your Wifi Passwords | Ciberseguridad + Inteligencia | Scoop.it

And the passwords are in plaintext, too. When you format an Android phone and set it up on first run, after you login to your Google account and restore your backup, it immediately connects to wifi using a saved password. There’s no sort of password hash that your Android phone could send your router to authenticate besides the password itself.

 

 

Oh, and Google is part of NSA’s Prism program. If an NSA analyst, or likely someone from CIA or even FBI (Prism is a “team sport”), asks Google for information about you, your house’s and office’s wifi passwords are likely included in that data. Without a warrant.

How to Encrypt Sensitive Data on Flash Drive

How to Encrypt Sensitive Data on Flash Drive | Ciberseguridad + Inteligencia | Scoop.it

Do you ever worry what would happen if your files fell into the wrong hands, especially those files that you kept on your external flash drive? Thankfully there are many options to encrypt sensitive data. Protectorion ToGo is one such application. While the free version is meant for private use only, it does allow you to encrypt up to two external devices. An added bonus is that the application is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8 (32bit + 64bit).

83% Of Mobile Apps Are Risky

83% Of Mobile Apps Are Risky | Ciberseguridad + Inteligencia | 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.

The revelation by a whistleblower has shocked US citizens and those outside of the US to the core of their privacy beliefs. Many ask: “How can our governments do something like this and intrude into our privacy?”. However, experts have expected this type of activity for years.

There is a saying that the power drives those holding it to want more power. Same is true with the governments and their information hunger, which despite being smoke screened in the name of anti-terrorism activities, presents great danger to unsuspecting citizens. Just because they can, does not mean they should.
